Running from 1 April – 31 May 2022, the Australian Heritage Festival is an opportunity for the community to organise events and exhibitions, gather stories and tell them, celebrate through ceremony and performances, share knowledge through talks, walks and tours, and have fun bringing heritage to life.

The 2022 Heritage Festival theme is Curiosity. From the city to the regions, this theme brings heritage to life by encouraging communities to actively wonder, investigate and learn about natural, cultural, Aboriginal, living and built heritage around the nation.
