Brisbane Open House

Various locations

13th October - 14th October

Brisbane city: unlocked.

Brisbane behind the scenes will once again be revealed when Brisbane Open House (BOH) takes centre stage across the city. BOH offers an opportunity to access and explore some of our most treasured landmarks and rich architecture.

At this free community event you can unlock award-winning architectural gems, undertake a pilgrimage of heritage places or select from several precincts in which to marvel built offerings.

This year over 110 buildings will open, including new comers Mt Crosby Pumping Station, Breakfast Creek Hotel, The Tivoli and the Spring Hill Baths.

Other popular and much-loved buildings are also returning, including Fort Lytton Historic Military Precinct, Port of Brisbane, Brisbane City Hall and The Old Windmill Tower.

BOH will present a full program of events including the Speakers Series and BOH After Dark events, where you are invited to join architects, designers, planners and professionals in conversation – exploring what influences the shape, experiences and growth of our city and its buildings. Plus, guided walking tours, concerts, workshops and photography competition.
