On Saturday 17 October 2015, the City of Gold Coast will host the inaugural Open House, unlocking the doors of quirky, interesting and significant buildings and inviting Gold Coasters to take a behind-the-scenes tour of private places not typically available for public access.
Around 20 properties are listed for the inaugural Gold Coast Open House. Chair of Gold Coast Open House 2015 and Chair of the Gold Coast and Northern Rivers’ branch of the Australian Institute of Architecture, Greg Ewart, says the list is impressive and diverse.
From the old Southport Drill Hall constructed in 1890, to the Hot Tomato on-air studios in High Street, to the iconic ‘80s Paradise Waters mansion of Gold Coast pioneer Keith Williams, the public can discover what lies behind the closed doors of fascinating buildings and places they may have only ever seen from the street.
Gold Coast Open House also offers a children’s program with free and entertaining activities available at many of the buildings open to the public.
A photographic competition, open to junior, amateur and professional photographers, will be held in conjunction with Gold Coast Open House. Sponsored by Hickey Lawyers, the competition offers prizes valued at $1,400 across the three categories.
If you are planning to go to this event, you’ll be glad to know that our Affordable Gold Coast Accomodation is just minutes away from Southport Drill Hall.
