A celebration of Queensland's heritage.
The Heritage Festival is an annual celebration and promotion of Queensland’s unique natural and cultural heritage and is part of a joint nationwide project that promotes heritage events across the states and territories. The National Trust Heritage Festival started in Queensland in 1983 to nurture and promote heritage related events in Queensland.
From the 16 April – 21 May 2017 the National Trust invites people to explore their heritage and find out what has shaped Australia. The Festival incorporates important dates and events including International Day for Monuments & Sites (18 Apr), ANZAC Day (25 Apr), National Archaeology Week and International Museums Day (18 May). The Australian Government supports the National Trust Heritage Festival through funding.
