Brisbane Open House

We have 119 buildings opening for free across the Brisbane Open House weekend, and most (99!) require no bookings.

However pre-bookings are required for most of the private homes and for some special heritage buildings – otherwise it would become unmanageable, and unsafe.

We understand each year the demand for tickets is high, which is why we try and keep the pre-booked buildings to a bare minimum. We have put together the below information to give you the best possible chance of securing the ticket you want!

Tips for booking:

  • Bookings can only be made through this website
  • Tickets are allocated on a first come first served basis
  • Each pre-booked building has a booking link on its building webpage – this will link through to the ticketing platform Eventbrite
  • Most pre-booked buildings only allow 2 tickets per order
  • IMPORTANT! To book you will need to create an Eventbrite account
  • As tickets go quickly we suggest you create an Eventbrite account before bookings open to help fast track your check out once tickets go live
  • Bookings will open at 9am on Friday 27 September.


  • If you are unsure how to perform an online booking, consider asking for help from a friend or family member, or drop us a line at
