Brisbane Open House

Brisbane Open House (BOH) is a 2 day annual event that invites residents and visitors to explore architecturally significant buildings throughout the Brisbane central business district, Fortitude Valley, South Bank and selected suburban areas.

Behind the scenes access

BOH opens up buildings of architectural, historical and sustainable design excellence to the public through free guided and self-guided tours with access to usually unseen ‘back-of-house’ areas.

In doing so, it gives the public and visitors to the city an insight into the splendour of the buildings, their history and their stories, and also the creative vision of the design teams who built them and the organisations that thrive within.

The event receives support from a diverse range of private and public sector organisations and is the product of a unique partnership between:

The 2013 event was held on 12-13 October.

Open House Worldwide

BOH is a member of the Open House Worldwide family.

Open House events are now staged in a variety of cities including London, New York, Chicago, Barcelona, Dublin, Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide.

The cultural importance of these events continues to grow with buildings and visitor numbers increasing each year thanks to strong government, corporate and community support.
