The 2021 Australian Heritage Festival has drawn to a close after two weeks of celebrations encompassing over 120 events across the state of Victoria. This year the festival explored the theme ‘Our Heritage for the Future’, and events were organised by the National Trust properties and Branches, local historical societies, community museums, local councils, Traditional Owner groups, heritage enthusiasts and other aligned organisations. After the disappointing cancellation of the 2020 Festival due to the ongoing impact of COVID-19 and the restrictions placed on Victorians, we were incredibly grateful to be able to celebrate together once again.

We would like to extend a huge thank you to all event organisers that joined with us to reconnect and reimagine our shared heritage across Victoria. Without this invaluable support the Festival would not have been possible.


Registrations for the 2022 Australian Heritage Festival will open later in the year. We recommend that you subscribe to the Victorian email list below to receive all updates.
