Heritage Festival - Environment, Planning and Sustainable Development Directorate - Environment

Thank you

The 2022 Canberra and Region Heritage Festival invited audiences to challenge how they see the tangible and intangible heritage that makes our region unique. With a theme of ‘Curiosity’, we were delighted by the number of broad and inclusive events from community groups and stakeholders in the ACT and surrounding district.

Thank you to everyone who attended the Festival and made it such a success.

We also extend a big thank you to our wonderful event organisers for piquing our curiosity and making the eclectic program possible.

See you next year!

Dhawura nguna ngurumbangu gunanggu Ngunnawal.

Hello
This country is Ngunnawal (ancestral/spiritual) homeland.
We all always respect elders, male and female, as well as Ngunnawal country itself.
They always keep the pathways of their ancestors alive.
They walk together as one.
