Cardinia Shire Council invites you to celebrate the Australian Heritage Festival at Emerald Museum.
The 2023 Australian Heritage Festival theme is Shared stories, inviting the community to uncover Australia’s layered history and build deeper connections by sharing their own rich and diverse stories.
Discover the rich histories of Emerald, home to a heritage-listed site of state significance, and surrounding districts. This includes the former Gembrook/C. A. Nobelius & Sons Nursery: once the largest fruit and ornamental tree exporter in the southern hemisphere.
