Open House Melbourne is your annual weekend of stickybeaking into other people's properties

Open House Melbourne – held in July every year – is much more than the chance to stickybeak at some of Melbourne's most fascinating buildings (although that's a pretty huge drawcard, to be honest). It's also an opportunity to reflect on the role that design has played in the evolution of our city, to glimpse what Melbourne may become in the future, and to consider the significance of our heritage and what we can do to protect it.

A large portion of the open buildings open to the public located in the City of Melbourne, including the environmentally progressive Council House 2, the Library at the Dock, the Melbourne City Baths and the Melbourne Town Hall. However, venture further out and you'll also discover fascinating sites in the suburbs. 

Our tip: the most popular buildings are always the old heritage sites (for good reason: they're incredible) but equally as eye-opening are the newer buildings. Some venues also require you to book in advance, so register early if you've got your heart set on a particular address.
