The National Trust Heritage Festival is an annual celebration and promotion of Queensland's unique natural and cultural heritage and is part of a joint nationwide project that promotes heritage events across the states and territories.
The 2016 theme, Discovery and Rediscoveries, encourages us to discover a new experience, or rediscover something that has been lost, forgotten or concealed.
Join the National Trust to discover or rediscover some of the wonderful places and stories that are showcased during the Festival. The events will be held between Saturday 16th April to Wednesday 18th May 2016.
Local communities throughout Australia have organised events ranging from open days or tours through historic places, including cemeteries and historic properties. Archaeological digs, history re-enactments, high teas, talks, workshops, ghost tours, musical performances and even Opera performed underground.
These events will provide the perfect opportunity for participants to highlight their organisation, collection, or stories from their local area.
Some of the events happening in Queensland are:
photographic portrait exhibitions
presentations and talks
heritage trails and history tours
So pick up a copy of the guide from the National Trust Office or visit the Festival website and see what is happening near you.
The National Trust sincerely thanks the Australian Government for its generous support of Australian's Heritage Festivals.
