Connecting the community to the State’s rich and diverse heritage
Returning to New South Wales from 18 April – 19 May 2024, 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 2024 Theme is Connections, encouraging celebration of the rich and diverse stories of our nation, strengthening cultural and historical ties and forging new bonds.
The theme acknowledges our link to people, places and the past, and the enduring connections that will shape the future of heritage.
See what’s planned near you so far and check back in April for the full suite of opportunities to engage in heritage in your local area.
