Boorloo Heritage Festival

The City of Perth, Boorloo Heritage Festival is a month-long celebration of our city's built, natural, and cultural heritage.

Now in its 13th year, the City of Perth Boorloo Heritage Festival shines a light on the multiple aspects of Perth's heritage, showcases its many vibrant neighbourhoods, and highlights the importance of the cultural heritage of the Whadjuk Nyoongar peoples of Boorloo.

With over 90 events during April, the festival offers a mix of heritage walks, talks, workshops, and a number of family-friendly activities, so there is truly something for everyone to enjoy! Head to the Boorloo Heritage Festival website for more information. See below for events at the State Library. 

There are no upcoming dates to display.

History, Home, Family, Love, Identity … and why we collect it
Behind every collection or pile of Stuff! is a collector moved by the secrets or human stories accompanying each object. In Stuff!, we asked State Library staff to select items from our collection that resonated with them. The result is a personal and surprising scrapbook of WA history.
