Event registration for the 2024 Australian Heritage Festival is now open!

Returning to New South Wales from 18 April – 19 May 2024 with the theme Connections, the Australian Heritage Festival is an opportunity for the community to access 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 National Trust looks forward to promoting real-time or virtual events in cities, towns, for community groups, businesses, Councils, conservation groups, museums, galleries, libraries, churches, synagogues, mosques, temples, retail centres, universities and schools.
