Around NSW, local communities celebrate their heritage through arts and cultural events, museums and galleries. Sydney plays host to many museums and galleries and theatre, or if you're heading out into regional NSW, don't forget to check what's on at the small towns and villages across the State.

Other cultural attractions well worth visiting around NSW include smaller private museums in historic towns with relics of earlier times. You'll also find beautiful galleries showcasing the work of local artists, photographers, and crafts from candles to clayworks and woodturning. Aboriginal cultural experiences include specialist tours and art galleries.
