Her­itage cel­e­bra­tion

Pro­tect­ing Aus­tralia’s his­tory and con­serv­ing lo­cal sites

Isis Town and Country - - News -

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.
