16 APRIL – 29 MAY 2016
The annual National Trust Heritage Festival was initiated in Victoria in 1980 to raise widespread community understanding of the value of heritage and the contribution it makes to the present. It was taken up with gusto by the NSW Trust the following year. In 2016 National Trust Heritage Festival coordinators are expecting 15,000 events to be registered nationwide.
This year the theme is Discovery & Rediscoveries. Discovery can encompass the experience of discovering something for the first time or rediscovering something that has been lost, forgotten or concealed.
The Festival provides a great opportunity for communities, individuals, local government and organisations to celebrate the places and events that have shaped our heritage. It is about sharing our stories and we need your help to make it a success.
