Welcome to the Australian Heritage Festival 2019Welcome to the 2019 Australian Heritage Festival

This year’s festival will bring together an array of events across the nation from 18 April – 19 May 2019. Our theme this year is Connecting People, Places and the Past.

Events across Australia will be held at historic buildings, landmarks, shipwrecks and sacred sites. The festival will bring together communities from all walks of life to recognise and celebrate heritage and culture through ceremony, song and dance, performance art, art in various media and artefacts, talks on books and stories, and guided tours of towns, places and spaces.

The Australian Heritage Festival will bring to life all chapters of Australian culture and history, telling the stories of diverse and distinctive experiences that make up our communities.
