Celebrating Australian heritage this year’s festival will bring together an array of events across the nation from 18 April–19 May 2019. The theme this year is ‘Connecting People, Places and the Past’. Events across Australia will be held at historic buildings, landmarks, shipwrecks and sacred sites.
The festival will bring together communities from all walks of life to recognise and celebrate heritage and culture through ceremony, song and dance, performance art, art in various media and artefacts, talks on books and stories, and guided tours of towns, places and spaces.
The Australian Heritage Festival will bring to life all chapters of Australian culture and history, telling the stories of diverse and distinctive experiences that make up our communities. The National Trust of Australia will host the Festival offering an array of exhibitions, walking tours, films, expert talks, workshops, food fairs, guided tours of historical sites, ceremonies, demonstrations, special dinners and lunches with the goal of connecting People, Places and the Past.
