Dust off your explorer's hat and mark your calendars for the Australian Heritage Festival in New South Wales, taking place from 18 April to 19 May 2024. This isn't just any event; it's the country's grandest community-driven celebration of natural, historic, and Indigenous heritage. 

Australian Heritage Festival 2024: A Family Adventure Through Time

Australian Heritage Festival (NSW):
Australian Heritage Festival in NSW.


Now in its 44th iteration, this festival has cemented its place as a must-visit for families looking to inject a dose of culture, history, and fun into their lives. It's the perfect outing for families of all shapes and sizes, with activities and events tailored to entertain tots, teens, and adults alike.

Imagine a month where the past meets the present through an array of engaging activities. The festival's packed program features everything from guided walks through historical sites that tell the tales of yesteryears, to hands-on workshops where kids can get their hands dirty learning age-old crafts. 

Add to this a lineup of performances that bring the stories of Australia's rich cultural tapestry to life, and you've got an event that promises not just entertainment, but education too.

What sets the Australian Heritage Festival apart are its uniquely themed experiences that change every year. This year's theme, 'Connections', aims to link us back to our roots, exploring the ties that bind us to this land and its stories. 

Special guests from the realm of history and conservation will be gracing the festival, offering insights that are as enriching as they are enlightening. Expect workshops that not only entertain but educate, fostering a deep appreciation for the heritage we all share.

The festival isn't just about looking and listening; it's about experiencing. Picture food experiences that take you on a culinary journey through time, ceremonies that pay homage to the Indigenous heritage of this land, and demonstrations that show rather than tell. 

These immersive experiences promise to leave lasting memories for you and your little ones.
