2018 Australian Heritage FestivalAustralian Heritage Festival

The Australian Heritage Festival is over for another year! This year the Festival focused on the theme 'My Culture, My Story'. For four weeks we celebrated the diversity of cultures that have shaped our shared heritage and reflected on the places where we live, work, and travel, and why they are special.

We thank all the event organisers for their contributions to this year’s Australian Heritage Festival program in Victoria. The Festival relies on the support of local communities, without which we could not have produced such a wonderful program. A special thank you goes to all the volunteers who have generously contributed their valuable time to ensure the success of their events and the ongoing care of their heritage places.

We would also like to thank our Friends of the Festival for their contributions and financial support and we encourage you to support them in return.

Don’t forget to share your experiences of the festival via Instagram for your chance to win a National Trust Family membership, see below for details. To keep up to date with announcements for the 2019 festival, you can contact us on festival@nattrust.com.au or follow us on social media.

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