In 2009 Heritage Perth staged its first major event – ‘Heritage Perth, Heritage Day”.
It was a great success and 9 years later, with a slight event name change and duration (now a weekend rather than a day), Heritage Perth is on the verge of staging the ninth annual FREE community event which now runs over two-days.
Perth Heritage Days helps to create a sense of community pride in the city’s rich heritage. The event is intended not only educate people but also demonstrate that exploring our history is an enjoyable and fun pastime. All activities are free and open to the whole community.
This year’s Perth Heritage Days takes place over the weekend of 14/15 October.
This is a sample of what our visitors thought of last year’s Perth Heritage Days:
- What a fantastic weekend, with so much enthusiasm from volunteers and facilities staff! Thanks so much – and I wish we could share this experience with tourists more often.
- Congratulations and thanks to all involved in the activities over the weekend. Such a variety and so many of interest that I could not cover them all. I’ll be back again next year!
- I thoroughly enjoyed the Heritage Perth Weekend. Thank you for organising such a great event.

Perth Heritage Days is a wonderful opportunity for community organisations, local government departments and individuals to share the stories which have shaped our past and form our future.
It could be an exhibition, a talk, a walk, a visual presentation, an interactive display, theatre, arts, music, open building, children and family activities, food events or workshop, Heritage Perth is open to ideas.
