"Freshwater - water, waves and wanderings"

Celebrating Water in all its Ways

This year's National Trust Heritage Festival features "freshwater" in the form of water, waves and wanderings. The theme of water and heritage weaves through nearly four hundred community events around the State.


Lighthouses, dams, creeks, lagoons, waterfalls, beaches, oceans, harbour pools and swimming holes - water in all shapes and forms features prominently in the program for 2003. Water and its place in the environment, in Indigenous culture and in the life of the early settlers will appear in walks and talks and exhibitions of paintings and photographs. As well, Heritage Hotels around New South Wales will turn into "Watering Holes" with tours, talks, 'trivia' nights and special dinners to celebrate the Heritage Festival.

As the Executive Director of the National Trust, Elsa Atkin, says: "Water and its importance to our past and present is highly relevant to our State, with major issues as drought, bushfires, water safety and salinity. During this year's National Trust Heritage Festival you will able to see how water is a unique part of our State heritage and its effect on all our lives today."
