Complementing the National Trust Heritage Festival is the Australian Heritage Week.

Australian Heritage Week is an annual national celebration of Australia’s unique heritage.
In 2015 Australian Heritage Week was held from Saturday 11 April until Sunday 19 April.
This covers two weekends and includes World Heritage Day (officially, the International Day for Monuments and Sites, endorsed by UNESCO in 1983), which is held each year on 18 April.
This special day offers an opportunity to raise public awareness about the diversity of the world’s heritage, its vulnerability, and protection and conservation efforts.

Australian Heritage Week is an opportunity for all Australians to join together to celebrate our shared and special heritage. All communities are encouraged to get involved with planning and hosting a range of exciting activities during Australian Heritage Week that show-case your unique local heritage to the rest of the country. Let’s join together to share our heritage stories and celebrate Australia’s amazing and unique heritage!

The Australian Government supports the National Trust Heritage Festival through funding and promotion of events on the Australian Heritage Week website. You also have the opportunity to register your event on the Australian Heritage Week website. Find out more about registering your event next year on the Australian Heritage Week website.
