Open House
30-31 July 2016

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 8th Year, Open House Melbourne 2015 opened 100+ doors - spanning across commercial, residential and green buildings, as well as places of worship and sporting grounds throughout greater Melbourne on the 26 & 27 July.

The full program of 100+ buildings and associated events for 2016 will be released mid June. Anyone interested in learning more about Melbourne should visit the website for more information, and keep up to date by signing up to our newsletter.

Open House Melbourne is an initiative of the Committee for Melbourne and is supported by many wonderful organisations and volunteers.
