Who can take part?

No matter where you are in Western Australia, if you have an event that commemorates Australia’s natural, cultural or Aboriginal heritage, we would love for you to take part in the Festival.

These five weeks are your opportunity to promote your tours, talks, exhibits, performances and virtual events. Most importantly, it’s a chance to have fun bringing heritage to life.

All event details will be displayed on our online Australian Heritage Festival calendar.

Registering your event for the Australian Heritage Festival connects you with likeminded organisations and individuals across the nation. By hosting an event, you’re providing new opportunities for the community to access important Shared Stories of our heritage and helping us to position heritage as important, enriching, valuable and worth celebrating for all.

You could be organising a walking tour, leading a guided tour of an historic place, hosting a talk… Putting on an art or photography exhibition? Terrific. Hosting a seminar or workshop? Fantastic. Planning on doing any of that virtually? Organise your Facebook live or Zoom details for your digital event and we’ll bring people to you.

There is no fee for registering your event with the Australian Heritage Festival.
