THE 1st AUSTRALIAN HERITAGE RACE

Unearth local stories for good

28 MAY 2017  | SUNDAY 10:00 AM | Novotel Melbourne on Collins

 

Welcome to The Heritage Race

The Heritage Race is a travel industry-led event that serves two purposes – to uncover local stories about places and to raise funds for the underprivileged, vulnerable elderly and homeless.

The race – aimed at uncovering 12-20 local stories in 120 minutes anywhere – can be organised by local travel industry champions around the region – wherever there are people who wish to make a difference.

The Heritage Race can be adapted to any local environment or theme, and support any local charity identified by local organizers. It is this which makes it unique and scalable.

The Heritage Race is owned by Yeoh Siew Hoon, travel industry editor and commentator.

If you’re interested in holding The Heritage Race in your city/country, contact us here for an affiliate programme.
