Australian Heritage Week

Australian Heritage Week is an annual national celebration of Australia’s unique heritage. In 2015 Australian Heritage Week will be held from Saturday 12 April until Sunday 19 April.

This covers two weekends and includes World Heritage Day (officially, the International Day for Monuments and Sites, endorsed by UNESCO in 1983), which is held each year on 18 April. This special day offers an opportunity to raise public awareness about the diversity of the world’s heritage, its vulnerability, and protection and conservation efforts.

Australian Heritage Week is an opportunity for all Australians to join together to celebrate our shared and special heritage.

All communities are encouraged to get involved with planning and hosting a range of exciting activities during Australian Heritage Week that show-case your unique local heritage to the rest of the country. Let’s join together to share our heritage stories and celebrate Australia’s amazing and unique heritage!
