Queanbeyan Heritage Festival

The Queanbeyan Region Heritage Festival, running April 4—May 6, offers a full and engaging program of events including the Queanbeyan Region Heritage Awards, an open day at the Queanbeyan Museum, family history workshops in different locations and an exhibition of mechanical musical instruments at a farm in Jembaicumbene. Most events are free though in some cases bookings are required. One event that will fill up early is an oral history workshop on Saturday April 28 with a panel of oral historians: ANU's Dr Alexandra Dellios, Bill Stephens OAM who has created many recordings in the National Library of Australia’s oral history collection, John McGlynn of Queanbeyan Museum and Marion Meiske who is currently collecting stories of Gundaroo.
