National Trust Heritage Festival
Saturday 18 April – Monday 18 May 2015 | FREE
Works of art can be used to communicate ideas, record events, tell stories and build our cultural heritage.
Join one of our fully trained Voluntary Gallery Guides who will use a range of examples from the historical, Indigenous and contemporary displays to help you discover how artists, both Australian and international, create images that can shape identity and heritage.
There is a different themed guided tour each day.
