Ever wanted to see how they shoot the nightly news? Ever wanted to sticky beak at the architecture of a luxury home? Want to see the Commonwealth Games venues up close?

This Saturday 4 November 2017 is your opportunity to see these and a lot more interesting and architecturally significant buildings and locations on the Gold Coast during the 3rd Gold Coast Open House.

This is an international event held annually in cities across the world. The Gold Coast may not have the grand heritage and historical venues like our capital cities but this year, there are 40 places to gain an insight into behind the scenes and history of buildings you see every day and may have wondered about. Buildings such as homes, churches, schools, universities, museums, art galleries, TV and radio stations, public utilities and workplaces.

Some venues have pre-booked tours which can be booked on the Gold Coast Open House website before 11:59pm 2 November. At the time of writing this article, there were still places available at:
St Hilda's School (limited)
Gold Coast Desalination Plant
Gold Coast Sports & Leisure Centre
Gold Coast Aquatic Centre
Palm Beach Granny Flat
Art Deco Walking Tours
Federation Walk Tours

All other venues you can visit at your leisure through the day. Visit the website to plan your route either on foot, car or public transport.

You can enter your snaps of the day in the Focus on Architecture Photography Competition which includes a Junior Category for the young budding photographers.

Gold Coast Open House is a completely free event for the public staffed by volunteers on the day.

I suggest checking their website for the full program and like their Facebook page for updates on the day.

Happy exploring!
