Simon Corbell launched the Centenary Heritage Festival today.
“Canberra is an important part of the festival but this year the Capital Region will also feature heavily in the program of events to mark Goulburn’s 150th Birthday and Queanbeyan’s 175th birthday as well as the contribution that other towns like Yass, Bungendore and Braidwood make to the Canberra region.
The festival includes 120 events over 15 days that will teach Canberrans more about our Aboriginal, natural and built heritage.
The Festival, themed milestones, runs from Saturday 13 until Sunday 28 April to encompass the ACT school holidays. There are many activities to entertain all ages from treasure hunts in nature parks to opens days, markets, storytelling, dances and tours.
“Places not normally accessible to the public will open their doors during the Festival, so I encourage all Canberrans to use the opportunity to get along to the many events,” Mr Corbell said.
