Open House Melbourne

26-27 July 2014

If you’ve ever walked past one of Melbourne’s many historic buildings or architectural design wonders and wanted to take a sticky beak inside, now is your chance. 

More than 100 of Melbourne’s most memorable and unusual places will open their doors to the public for two days, from 26-27 July 2014. 

Now in its 7th year, Open House Melbourne gives the public a rare (and free) opportunity to discover the city’s wealth of design, architectural, engineering and historic gems. Award-winning private residences, historic buildings, national monuments, architectural and engineering marvels are among the properties unlocking their doors for the weekend. 

Every year, a small number of buildings are preallocated via a ballot system, and the rest are open access across the weekend - all you need to do is turn up. There are also a range of free tours available.
