Come on in!

If love is an open door, this August, Brisbane City will be full of it with a crowd-favourite event that truly goes down in history. Brisbane Open House (BOH) is back, giving you a rare opportunity to discover the hidden wealth of architecture, engineering, and history in buildings and places you see on the daily. 

A range of both significant public and private places in and around Brisbane City will be welcoming inquisitive visitors to uncover their stories from 27-28 August. An ever-popular event, participants will take part in guided or self-guided tours through a world of design and intrigue. 

This year will also see the introduction of the Iconic Precinct in partnership with Aria Property, hosted in the lush Fish Lane Arts Precinct. While this year’s program is yet to be unveiled, past highlights hint at an epic lineup of more than 40 venues across Brisbane, like the St John’s Cathedral, The United Grand Lodge Queensland, Treasury Hotel, Old Government House, and more. 

Of course, with Brisbane set to perform on the worldwide stage for the 2032 Olympics, BOH is rising to the occasion in the lead up, with the new Villages of Brisbane. Celebrating Greater Brisbane’s history, heritage, architecture, engineering, and urban planning, this year will see the spotlight on the bayside suburbs of Sandgate and Shorncliffe. Visitors will be treated to a program full of wonderful buildings, guided walking tours, spectacular sights, and informative speakers who can’t wait to share.
