NATIONAL TRUST FREE GUIDE

Western Australia

The Australian Heritage Festival is supported through funding from the Australian Government’s National Trusts Partnership Program.

18 April - 21 May 2017 australianheritagefestival.org.au


ACKNOWLEDGEMENT of Country

WELCOME to the 2017 Australian Heritage Festival

The National Trust of Western Australia acknowledges the traditional owners of the land on which these events will be held and acknowledges and respects their continuing culture and contribution they make to the life of Western Australia.

I am thrilled to share with you such a diverse range of events to celebrate Western Australia’s natural, Aboriginal and historic heritage.

The events focused on Noongar woman Fanny Balbuk represent the theme so well. This National Trust program will bring her story to the wider community. She had such a strong voice in a time when women’s voices, and particularly Aboriginal women’s voices, were silent. It is absolutely fascinating.

The festival has new branding and a new website to better represent the national nature of this wonderful celebration of heritage. I encourage you to visit the new website, australianheritagefestival.org.au, where you can explore even more events online than are listed in this Western Australian program and find more information about your favourite events, timely updates and links to the event holders’ websites.

The Festival is a combined effort and the National Trust would like to gratefully acknowledge the continued support of the Australian Government, Lotterywest and the collaborative efforts and contributions from all our sponsors, partners, event holders, staff and volunteers.

CULTURAL Sensitivity Note

Readers are advised that this program contains images of people who have passed away. Out of respect for different interpretation, you will find Noongar (Aboriginal people of south west Western Australia) spelt in a number of different ways throughout the program.

Information contained in this program is accurate at the time of printing but is subject to change. More details can be found by contacting the relevant organisation - contact details included with each event - or check for program updates at australianheritagefestival.org.au.

Australian Heritage Festival 2017

This year’s Having a Voice theme has been inspired by the 50th anniversary of the 1967 referendum that gave Aboriginal people the vote. It has inspired a range of diverse events from song and parenting to fashion and news.

Our experience shows communities that embrace their heritage are healthier and happier. So embrace Australia’s heritage by exploring events today. Max Kay AM CitWA President, National Trust of Australia (WA)


CONGRATULATIONS on the launch of the 2017 Australian Heritage Festival I am extremely pleased that the National Trust Heritage Festival, Australia’s longest running community festival, has now been expanded through a three year partnership with the Australian Government to become the Australian Heritage Festival. Running for four weeks from 18th April to 21st May, the Festival engages local communities in their history and the importance of recognising a nationally shared heritage. This year’s theme is Having a Voice— extremely fitting as our national heritage is rich with voices from many cultures. Australia’s heritage is unique, it contributes to our sense of place, community and personal wellbeing, it informs us about where we have come from and who we are, and is an

THANK YOU to our supporters

important part of our national identity. Western Australia is home to some of Australia’s most important heritage places, including  Fremantle Prison, part of the Australian Convict Sites World Heritage listing; the spectacular Dampier Archipelago with its abundant and exceptionally diverse rock engravings with some sites containing thousands or tens of thousands of images; Cape Inscription where Dirk Hartog and his crew became the first Europeans to land on the west coast of Australia; and Lesueur National Park, an internationally recognised ‘biodiversity hotspot’ and one of the most important reserves for plant conservation in Australia. I encourage all Australians to raise their own voices in celebration of the places, people and events that have made us who we are today. The Hon Josh Frydenberg MP

Having a Voice

Community groups have embraced this year’s Festival theme – Having a Voice – with enthusiasm. Fifty years ago the 1967 referendum gave Aboriginal people a voice in the affairs of our nation through the right to vote. In this festival other seldom heard voices which contribute to the richness of our community will be heard. From graves to roof tops, voices of West Australians will entertain and enrich you.
