Heritage Festival

The National Trust Heritage Festival is happening throughout Australia between the  18th of April and the 19th of May. The theme is Connections and the 2024 festival will celebrate the rich and diverse stories of our nation, strengthen cultural and historical ties and encourage the community to forge new bonds. It acknowledges our link to people, places and the past, and the enduring connections that will shape the future of heritage.

Join us at Gympie Library for two interactive sessions celebrating the National Trust Heritage festival and the heritage of our beautiful local area.
