The Mulga Bill Writing Award is proudly presented by the Eaglehawk Dahlia and Arts festival; a 14-day celebration of community, creativity, heritage and tradition.
The festival happens once a year in this historic borough in the heart of Victoria’s goldfields, less than 10-minutes from Bendigo.
Think art and craft exhibitions, family entertainment, floral displays, sidewalk astronomy, pet blessings, relay races and one almighty march down the main street for a much-loved procession.
There’s been a hotly-contested literary competition since the very first festival, over 30 years ago.
