This year the Australian Heritage Festival is focusing on the theme My Culture, My Story. We will be celebrating the diversity of cultures that have shaped our shared heritage. The Festival is an opportunity to reflect on the places where we live, work, and travel, and why they are special.

The national launch of the Australian Heritage Festival 2018 was on Wednesday, 18 April in Sydney. The keynote speaker was Elizabeth Farrelly, Sydney-based author, architecture critic, columnist and speaker.

Join communities across Australia as they treasure their local cultural heritage by telling their stories and celebrating their traditions, including storytelling, music, food, dance, traditional games, and crafts.

Please join us and get involved for what will be an amazing celebration.

Thank you to all of the organisers who joined us and got involved in this amazing celebration. Thank you also to everyone that attended an Australian Heritage Festival event. Thousands of people across New South Wales participated in local open days, talks, walks and exhibitions. We are already looking forward to the 2019 Australian Heritage Festival!
