The Australian Heritage Festival is Australia’s biggest annual community-driven heritage festival. NSW’s contribution to the festival sees over 500 events, 330 event organisers  and up to 200,000 visitors each year attend our state’s celebration of heritage.

The Festival provides an opportunity for communities, individuals, local governments and organisations to celebrate the places and events that have shaped our heritage.  It’s an opportunity to share NSW’s stories state-wide and nationally – and we’d like you to be involved.

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