Open House Melbourne is a not-for-profit association that runs annual events providing the public a free and rare opportunity to discover a hidden wealth of architectural, engineering and historic buildings nestled around the city.
The inaugural 2008 Open House Melbourne saw 8 buildings open and more than 30,000 visits across the day. Since then, the event has grown; the 5th installment in 2012 expanded to 100 buildings, with 135,000 visits to the buildings in surrounding suburbs as well as Melbourne’s CBD and Docklands.
In its 6th Year, Open House Melbourne 2013 is set to open 100+ doors – spanning across commercial, residential and green buildings, as well as places of worship and sporting grounds throughout greater Melbourne on the 27 & 28 July. Click Here!
The full program of 100+ buildings and associated events will be released mid June. Anyone interested in learning more about Melbourne should visit
