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 for free 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 – 18 May 2016 the National Trust invited 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), Australian Heritage Week (16-24 Apr 2016), ANZAC Day (25 Apr), Mother’s Day (Sun 8 May 2016), National Archaeology Week (15- 22 May 2016) and International Museums Day (18 May). Complementing the National Trust Heritage Festival is Australian Heritage Week (16-24 April 2016), an annual national celebration providing an opportunity for all Australians to celebrate their shared heritage. The Australian Government supported the National Trust Heritage Festival through funding and promotion of events on the Australian Heritage Week website.
The 2017 Festival dates and themes will be published soon.
