Welcome to the 2018 Australian Heritage Festival2018 Australian Heritage Festival SA

The Australian Heritage Festival is a national celebration of our heritage, a chance to discover and explore our built, natural and cultural heritage. This year’s program takes you behind closed doors, underground, back in time and out and about in some of our most amazing heritage places.

Last year between April and May thousands of people across South Australia enjoyed more than 90 events celebrating our unique heritage, history and culture as part of the Australian Heritage Festival.

In 2018 we once again launch on April the 18th to coincide with The International Day for Monuments and Sites.

This year we are focusing on what makes a place special, encouraging us all to embrace the future by sharing the strengths of our cultural identities. The 2018 Australian Heritage Festival theme is My Culture, My Story celebrating the diversity of cultures that have shaped our shared heritage. The Festival is an opportunity to reflect on the places where we live, work, and travel, and why they are special, celebrating our many diverse and distinctive cultures.

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