The Australian Heritage Festival is the nation’s largest community-driven heritage event. An annual celebration of natural, historic and Indigenous heritage, 2024 marks the 44th year of the Festival which features hundreds of FREE and ticketed events and activities for all ages, interests and budgets.

The NSW programme of the 2024 Australian Heritage Festival will open on World Heritage Day Thursday 18 April and continue daily until Sunday 19 May 2024 (inclusive).

Spanning metropolitan and regional areas of the state, this year’s Festival theme is ‘Connections’ and the 2024 NSW calendar includes special exhibitions, walks, tours of historical sites, performances, food experiences, ceremonies, demonstrations, and other attractions curated to bring heritage to life for all. 

The Australian Heritage Festival is organised, promoted, facilitated, and led by the National Trust. It not only connects communities but also provides patronage and support to many worthwhile organisations such as not-for-profit and community groups, businesses, councils, conservation groups, museums, galleries, libraries, churches, and others.

The NSW Government through Heritage NSW is principal sponsor of the Australian Heritage Festival and the National Trust Heritage Awards, which is the signature event of the Australian Heritage Festival.
