The Australian Heritage Festival is supported through funding from the Australian Government’s National Trusts Partnership Program.

The National Trust and thousands of Australian Heritage Festival event organisers and volunteers across the country invite you to over 1,100 events celebrating our fantastic heritage, history and culture.

For the next four weeks come join Australia’s largest grass roots heritage festival and many thousands of visitors and show your support for cultural and historic assets from around the country.

Whether you want to discover more about the cultural and indigenous history on your doorstep, across your state or across the country, or hear many inspiring personal stories that make up our Australian heritage, there’s something on the program for everyone to enjoy.

Read a message from The Hon Josh Frydenberg MP, Minister for the Environment and Energy, about the importance of honouring our heritage.

Check out our Festival Spotlights where each week we will highlight some of the best events happening across the country.
