BOH’s 2023 free program of events featured a curated selection of our regular historic and contemporary buildings, with everything from heritage-listed homes to cutting-edge commercial spaces – including some of Brisbane’s most iconic buildings, our most popular previous venues, as well as some of our city’s newest projects and best-kept secrets!
But it’s not just the remarkable built form that attracts visitors each year, we also have free activities and entertainment for kids and adults alike.
