Welcome to the Australian Heritage Festival

The Australian Heritage Festival is the country's largest community-driven celebration of heritage.

For more than 40 years the National Trust has connected the nation through the Australian Heritage Festival celebrations.

From the city to the regions right across Australia, the festival is an opportunity for the community to immerse themselves in the country’s rich and diverse heritage, offering unmatched access to special exhibitions, tours, talks, workshops, food fairs, ceremonies, demonstrations, dinners and more.

Returning in April and May with the theme Connections, the 2024 festival will celebrate the rich and diverse stories of our nation, strengthen cultural and historical ties and encourage the community to forge new bonds. It acknowledges our link to people, places and the past, and the enduring connections that will shape the future of heritage.


Join the celebrations:

The National Trust of Australia (Queensland) is pleased to announce that Australia’s biggest community-driven Heritage Festival for Queensland will run from Thursday 18 April to Sunday 19 May 2024 in Queensland.
