Cultural Treasures Festival

Discover Our Cultural Treasures

The biennial University of Melbourne Cultural Treasures Festival is a free program of exhibitions, thematic walks, talks and seminars, demonstrations and displays, and guided tours which showcases the University's rich array of museums and collections. Included amongst the many walks through the historic University campus are programs focusing on botanical, medical, musical and scientific collections, architecture, and ‘Cultural Rubble’, a guided tour of some of the University’s outdoor sculpture. In addition staff and researchers in the cultural area run seminars and presentations.

The Cultural Treasures Festival 2012 was a free two-day event which took place over the weekend of 28 and 29 July, 2012. On the same weekend there were two other major events being held on campus: the 39th ANZAAB Australian Antiquarian Book Fair which was held in the University's splendid Wilson Hall, and the Melbourne Open House program which involved numerous buildings of architectural interest on campus, as well as some of the University colleges.
