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.
