Every place has a story. It's these stories that transform locations to 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 mid-April to mid-may 2020 (exact dates still to be announced).

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

Sydney Highlights of the Australian Heritage Festival 2020

We'll share are our picks of NSW Heritage Week walking tours as soon as the program is released.

In 2019, there were wonderful history walks in Parramatta, walks for architecture-lovers, harbour cruises with a walking component, and bush walks. Fingers crossed for an exciting 2020 program too!
