RECAP: The Earful Tower Tour of Australia

We went on tour!!!

That’s right, this time we brought Paris to your very doorstep. Following the announcement of our latest children’s book, Grace the Giraffe, we took to Australia for our very first international book tour. So, with Kylie the Crocodile and Roger the Liger neatly packed in our cases, we began in Tasmania. Here’s what happened.

For the whole month of October 2022, Lina and I travelled the east coast of Australia and held events to discuss everything Paris, host book readings and most importantly… met listeners, readers, and Francophiles.

Below you’ll find the all the photos and details from our events.

5th October Hobart – Preachers

At Preachers Bar we met listeners including 86-year-old Adrienne, who is the channel’s self-proclaimed oldest listener!!

Tuesday 11th October: Brisbane – Alliance Francaise

At Brisbane’s Alliance Francaise we had French wine and cheese while meeting AF members and talking children’s books.

Sunday 16th October: Newcastle – Honeysuckle Hotel

A casual Earful meet-up at Newcastle’s Honeysuckle Hotel saw a surprising number of longtime Earful fans.

Tuesday 18th October: Sydney – Four Frogs Randwick

We had the room upstairs for an evening of crepes and children’s books.

Thursday 20th October: Sydney – Four Frogs Mosman

We had a table in the back corner for a fun and casual meet and greet.

Friday 28th October: Melbourne – Windsor Hotel

Due to unexpected and overwhelming demand, we upgraded our Melbourne show for Friday night and hosted it inside the Windsor Hotel, a beautiful heritage building that is simply stunning and perfect for a book launch. 60 people showed up!

Saturday 29th October: Geelong – Le Festival Francais

We shared our Paris experiences at a special sold-out presentation at the Festival Francais. A full house to end the tour!

  1. Great to hear from you now you are in Australia Oliver – enjoy your travels. Unfortunately my friend and I probably won’t be able to catch up with you after all, as we live near Croydon in Melbourne. Wishing you well and looking forward to Grace – warmest wishes, Valerie Mayer

  2. Dear Oliver and Lina. Please May I attend your soirée in Melbourne as the second oldest follower you have ! A sprightly 81 yr old who has followed you since your heart shaped honeymoon tour days. Kind regards, Linley Vellacott
