Heritage is about the things from the past which
are valued enough today to save for tomorrow.

Perth Heritage Days is a free event presented by Heritage Perth in partnership with a range of organisations. The event enables members of the public to engage with Perth’s history and heritage, providing an opportunity for people to explore and enjoy a wide range of heritage-related activities across the city centre.  

Through the generous sponsorship of City of Perth, Lotterywest, Heritage Council of Western Australia and other organisations, the event is completely free of charge, making it available to a wide cross-section of the community.

The 2016 Perth Heritage Days took place on 15 & 16 October and attracted visitation of over 43,000, with people converging on the streets, parks, historic buildings, museums and libraries of central Perth to participate in a weekend of discovery.

An independent survey of the 2016 event provides the following statistics;


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.
