It’s Sunday (fun day) and we’re deeply ensconced in planning mode. You see, we’re heading to Open House Melbourne on 28/29 July and, with 220+ buildings and sites to visit, we’ll need to be a little bit organised so we don’t miss any of the must-see places.
Already on the list is Marilyn Rowe House, the Australian Ballet School’s residence for students, aged between 13-16, in Parkville.
Other buildings and sites we’d like to visit include:
– Koori Heritage Walking tour – https://www.openhousemelbourne.org/event/sites-of-indigenous-significance-in-kulin-melbourne-a-walking-tour/
– Federation Square – https://www.openhousemelbourne.org/melbourne/buildings/federation-square
– Substation J – https://www.openhousemelbourne.org/melbourne/buildings/substation-j
– Port of Melbourne boat tours – https://www.openhousemelbourne.org/melbourne/buildings/port-of-melbourne-boat-tours
– Melbourne Cemetery guided tours – https://www.openhousemelbourne.org/melbourne/buildings/melbourne-general-cemetery
Some buildings have pre-booked tours, due to their limited capacity, and require a small $5 booking fee to reserve a place.
First release bookings open on Friday 13 July at 8:30am with the second release on Friday 20th July at 8:30am. Check each building page for the direct Universe ticketing link or find the full list of pre-booked buildings here: universe.com/openhousemelbourne
To help with your planning, head to the website or purchase a program for the event. You can pre-order your program today from Readings for $24.95. or just head along to one of their stores and pick one up. They can also be bought from the festival hub, outside the Melbourne Town Hall, on the day.
