The National Trust Heritage Festival began back in 1980 and has become Australia’s biggest festival of heritage and culture. This year’s festival will bring together an array of events across the nation from 18 April – 19 May 2019.
Events across Australia will be held at historic buildings, landmarks, shipwrecks and sacred sites. The festival is a result of the National Trust of Australia working with the Australian Government. Australians and international visitors can experience exhibitions, walking tours, films, expert talks, workshops, food fairs, guided tours of historical sites, ceremonies, and demonstrations. Past events have included displays, open days, high teas, archaeological digs, wheelbarrow races, re-enactments and even opera performed underground! Want to register an event?
