Open House Queensland & Worldwide

Open House Queensland

Brisbane Open House is a young event with significant growth potential. Since its inception in 2010 the Office of the Queensland Government Architect has actively promoted the Open House concept across Queensland. 

Queensland’s regional centres and their high quality of built environments allow the initiative to support strong tourism, cultural and professional development beyond Brisbane. A regional program involving the cities of Cairns, Townsville, Rockhampton, Toowoomba and Maryborough was identified and progressed, with the first regional event – Maryborough Open House – staged on 27 October 2012. 

The Brisbane Open House Management Committee supports the Queensland Open House organisers by helping to promote their events as well as provide background documentation and event guidance. 

The Brisbane Open House team looks forward to helping kick-start similar events in other regional centres throughout the state.
