Her­itage spot­light on Chiltern

North East Tourist News - - Around the Region -

IN April 2016 Chiltern Tourism & De­vel­op­ment is part­ner­ing with the Na­tional Trust of Aus­tralia (Vic­to­ria) to help launch the Trusts’ Her­itage Fes­ti­val 2016.

The Her­itage Fes­ti­val is part of the NTAV 60th an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions in 2016.

The 60th an­niver­sary presents op­por­tu­ni­ties to par­tic­u­larly cel­e­brate and ex­ploit con­nec­tions, an­niver­saries and vin­tages from the 1950s.

In 2016 the theme for the Her­itage Fes­ti­val will be dis­cov­er­ies and re­dis­cov­er­ies.

The event will be co-pre­sented and co-branded NTAV and Chiltern Tourism and De­vel­op­ment Inc Her­itage Fes­ti­val (Dis­cov­er­ies & Re­dis­cov­er­ies) and held on Satur­day, April 16.

The event will be based in Chiltern with as many lo­cal her­itage prop­er­ties and his­tory groups in­volved as pos­si­ble.

This will in­clude the pro­mo­tion of the his­toric town of Chiltern and the three Na­tional Trust owned prop­er­ties lo­cated in the town.

Chiltern Tourism & De­vel­op­ment is invit­ing all ser­vice clubs, sport­ing bod­ies, es­sen­tial ser­vices and in­di­vid­u­als to or­gan­ise their own “back to” cel­e­bra­tion on this week­end un­der the brand – Come Home to Chiltern.

If you are plan­ning a fam­ily re-union Chiltern Tourism & De­vel­op­ment may be able to as­sist there too.

But or­gan­is­ers need as many peo­ple as pos­si­ble to ‘come home to Chiltern’ on that week­end.
