Heritage Week 2022 – We Came to Whitehorse

The Whitehorse area has always been a place where people can settle and start a home, work and socialise with others. Our history includes fishing, farming and coming together as a community and this is reflected in our shared cultural heritage.

Join us for Heritage Week from 8 to 15 September 2022.

Please note: events may be subject to change due to Victorian Government restrictions. Check back on this event page for any updates.
