Protecting Australia’s history and conserving local sites
AUSTRALIAN Heritage Week is an annual national celebration of our country’s unique heritage.
It is an opportunity for all Australians to join and celebrate our shared and special heritage.
The week gives Australians the opportunity to celebrate our amazing natural places and our local historic sites that reflect our development as a nation.
It is also a time to raise the awareness of the importance of conserving and protecting Australia’s most special heritage places.
Secretary of the Isis District Historical Society, Bev Santacaterina, said the society would hold an open day at the Taylor St complex on Saturday from 9am–3pm.
“Some of the attractions and displays will include buggies, trucks and milk cans, old cars and engines and an oil can collection,” Mrs Santacaterina said.
She said photo boards should create interest and conversations.
The QCWA members will display skills and crafts in the rotunda and they will provide tea and coffee to visitors.
“I would encourage visitors to bring a picnic, stop for a yarn and enjoy the surroundings,” she said.
The historical complex is a great place to visit and explore. All the buildings will be open to the public and the entry is free.
