Every place has a story. It's these stories that transform sites from a mere location to gaining a sense of place.

The annual NSW Heritage Festival offers a range of history-focused events. This year, the Australian Heritage Festival will be held between 18 April and 19 May 2019.

Knowing our readers have a passion for heritage and history walks, we will soon collate 2019's National Trust events to showcase the Sydney events (just as soon as the full NSW programme of the Australian Heritage Festival 2019 becomes available).

We update this page every year to bring you the latest events.
