Gold Coast Open House 2017 - Art Deco Tour of Southport

Southport, Gold Coast Area

4 November 2017 - 

Free Entry

On Saturday 4 November 2017, the third annual Gold Coast Open House opens the doors of interesting and architecturally significant buildings and locations, inviting the public to take a behind the scenes look at places they may have only glimpsed from the street.

Gold Coast Open House unlocks 40 buildings, places and spaces across the city, from heritage gems to Commonwealth Games-ready sports venues and inspiring buildings, homes, churches, schools, universities, museums, art galleries, television and radio stations, public utilities and workplaces that reflect the city’s unique architecture and urban design.

Famous for its interwar and post-war development boom and recreational industries, the Gold Coast has a varied and unique stock of buildings and places in comparison with many other major Australian cities.

The 2017 program demonstrates the evolution of architecture on the Gold Coast, some buildings dating back to the late 1800s, early 1900s, to cutting edge design of recent years by some of the Gold Coast’s leading architects.

Gold Coast Open House is a free event.

Volunteer greeters, hosts and photographers are required, to help boost the Gold Coast Open House image library for future events. Register online!
