Open House Ballarat 2017

Sat 28th October, 2017 – Sun 29th October, 2017
Investigate the regional city like you’ve never been allowed to before.

Ever wanted to take a squiz inside some of Ballarat’s most prestigious and interesting buildings? In a way that is both socially acceptable and 100 per cent legal? For one weekend in October, you’ll have your chance.

Presented by Open House Melbourne in collaboration with Visit Ballarat, the Open House concept is extending to Ballarat this year for the first time. Over two days 20 of Ballarat’s most impressive private residential homes, commercial and civic buildings and landscapes will be on display to the public for the first time. It’s an ideal tour for the design inclined, space curious and nosey.

Open House was founded in London in 1992 and has been running in Melbourne since 2008. Its purpose is to instil a sense of civic pride by celebrating the city through its built environment, and to empower people by giving them knowledge about the city.

The list of open buildings on display is available at
