The Australian Romance Readers Association offers readers unique opportunities to connect with other romance readers in Australia, attend events, meet some of your favourite romance authors, and talk about your favourite books with people who understand. For romance authors, it offers the opportunity to reach new Australian readers, and to connect with Australian fans.

We have a thriving online community, and a monthly newsletter full of reviews, news, views, and profiles, all aimed at romance readers. Visit our blog for all our latest news, or join our Facebook Group to chat about romance.

ARRA hosted five biennial romance readers conventions from 2009 to 2017. The final convention was held in Melbourne in February 2017. Other special events are often happening. 

In 2019 we held our first A Romantic Rendezvous multi-author, multi-city signing events, featuring special guests Celeste Bradley and Keri Arthur. In March 2020 our second series of events, ARR2020, featured Darynda Jones and Susan Donovan.

ARRA has published a romance novel! Written by Shannon Curtis, from plot ideas crowd-sourced from ARRA readers, Tribal Law is a sexy paranormal romance.  Find out more here.
