Your chance to see inside 101 Brisbane buildings

DISCOVER a world of beautiful architecture this weekend when beautiful buildings throughout Brisbane open their doors to the public for the annual Brisbane Open House Weekend.

On this Saturday and Sunday, October 8-9, the event will see 101 buildings around the city open their doors to the public for free, including the Roma Street Fire Station, Masonic Memorial Temple and Wilson Architects headquarters.

The aim of the event is to open up interesting buildings that are not normally accessible to the general public.

Private institutions such as clubs and societies, government offices, commercial buildings and even private residences that are old, beautiful and/or interesting will all be open for the curious public to see.

Visits to some buildings must be pre-booked online, although the extra effort will be worth it to take a tour of stunning, architecturally-designed private residences such as The Garden Room House in New Farm, Folkhouse in Balmoral, or Left Over Space House in Paddington.

Free guided walking tours through some of Brisbane's most significant and interesting precincts and buildings will also be on offer over from Friday to Sunday but must be pre-booked.
