Brisbane Open House  – July 13 + 14  2024


Welcome to Brisbane Open House 2024; join us on the 13 + 14 July

We are delighted to announce details of our 2024 program… and we’re doing things a little differently this year!

Below are the focal points for this year’s weekend:

  • Our program will be geo-focused. This means that, predominantly, our program will be focused in inner-Brisbane. This is to provide audiences with easy access to as many Open House buildings as possible. See our 2024 Buildings here
  • We are also integrating our wonderful Villages of Brisbane into our weekend program and we are delighted to announce that New Farm is our 2024 VOB. We will be working closely with the New Farm & Districts Historical Society, who are celebrating their 30th anniversary this year. 
  • There will be two key hubs in the program: Thomas Dixon Centre – Queensland Ballet in West End and Brisbane Powerhouse – New Farm
  • On Sunday, 14 July, join a full-day Speaker Series at the Brisbane Powerhouse.
  • There will be a range of Tours + Talks running throughout the weekend.
  • Join a number of free guided walks across the weekend.
  • There will also be many Workshops + Activities + more in various locations.

We look forward to welcoming you to an exceptional 2024 Brisbane Open House weekend!
