This is the opportunity to discover the entire heritage wonders that this beautiful area has to offer both residents and visitors alike. The Canberra and Region Heritage Festival is a way to celebrate Canberra’s retro and vintage heritage, as well as future decades yet to come.

It is a way of celebrating the area’s Aboriginal heritage, sharing with visitors a sense of vibrancy and community, through art and culture, concerts, exhibitions, sporting events, dance, music and film. Some of the events that festivalgoers can look forward to this year are the Balloon Spectacular, Lights! Camera! Action! Celebrate in the Park, as well as Symphony in the Park.

The Canberra and Region Heritage Festival has not forgotten to bring back a few favourites, such as the Big Canberra Bike Ride, Black Opal Stakes, All Ford Capital Car Show, and the National Sheep Dog Trial Championships.

Jump on a tour to the Adelong Gold Mill Ruins, milk a cow at the Duntroon Dairy Open Day, sample High Tea at the Hyatt, join a guided bushwalk along Cooleman Ridge, hunt for Easter Eggs at Lanyon Homestead, watch the Rolls Royce Rally or take the kids to the Tidbinbilla Extravaganza.

For those travelling from further a field, staying in Canberra hotels can provide the place to relax before and after the event.
