The Queanbeyan Palerang 2022 Heritage Awards were held on Saturday 30 April at the Braidwood Museum.

The awards are given each year in recognition of the community’s ongoing contributions to the conservation, education, and promotion of built and human heritage across the Queanbeyan Palerang area.

This year we received a record number of applications across three categories, with many high-quality heritage works in the running.
