Be a part of the Australian Heritage Festival Victoria

The National Trust of Australia (Victoria) is excited to announce that Australia’s biggest community driven Heritage Festival will run from Thursday 18 April to Saturday 18 May 2024 in Victoria.

Each year hundreds of organisations run events for their local communities in the form of heritage walks, talks, experiences, exhibitions, demonstrations, open days and so much more…

… And we want you to be part of it in 2024!

Registrations are now open and there is no cost to register an event. Events can be specially created for the Heritage Festival Program, or you can register tours or programs that you already run – so long as they take place during the festival dates.

By participating in the 2024 Australian Heritage Festival, you will be joining a community movement to ensure that our cultural heritage is acknowledged, celebrated, and understood throughout our local communities and beyond.

The 2024 festival is supported by the Heritage Council Victoria celebrating 50 years of the Victorian Heritage Register.
