The Australian Heritage Festival is the country's largest community-driven celebration of heritage.

For more than 40 years the National Trust has connected the nation through the Australian Heritage Festival celebrations.

From the city to the regions right across Australia, the festival an opportunity for the community to immerse themselves in the country’s rich and diverse heritage, offering unmatched access to special exhibitions, tours, talks, workshops, food fairs, ceremonies, demonstrations, dinners and more.

The 2024 festival returned in April and May with the theme Connections and encouraged the community to actively wonder, investigate, and learn about natural, cultural, Indigenous, living and built heritage around the nation.

We thank the hundreds of event organisers and volunteers from across the country who hosted incredible real-time or virtual heritage events for their local communities, and members of the public who attended.
