Australian Heritage Festival

The Australian Heritage Festival, the country's largest community-driven heritage event, returns 1 April – 31 May 2022, celebrating the theme ‘Curiosity'.

For more than 40 years the National Trust has connected the nation through the Australian Heritage Festival celebrations. Returning in 2022 with the new theme Curiosity, the festival is set to bring heritage to life once more, encouraging the community to actively wonder, investigate, and learn about natural, cultural, Indigenous, living and built heritage around the nation.
