Australian Heritage Festival

Australian Heritage Festival

Welcome to Australia’s largest inclusive celebration of all things heritage.

The Australian Heritage Festival is an annual community-driven event that connects country by immersing you into the rich and diverse heritage our country has to offer. For more than 40 years, Western Australians have taken part by hosting special exhibitions, tours, talks, workshops, food fairs, ceremonies, demonstrations, dining events, interactive displays and so much more. Each and every event a wonderful interpretation of heritage and culture from around our great state.

In Western Australia, the festival is both a celebration and reflection on the natural and cultural heritage of the state, taking place from 18 April – 19 May 2024. We invite all to curious about our shared histories and tales of people, place and culture so together, Australians might share even more stories and connections than ever before.

The 2024 festival theme

The theme of the 2024 Australian Heritage Festival is “Connections“.

We encourage the community to celebrate the rich and diverse stories of our nation, strengthen cultural and historical ties and forge new bonds.

We celebrate our link to people, places and the past, and the enduring connections that will shape the future of heritage.
