On Saturday 8 September 2018 in Launceston and Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 November 2018 in Hobart, Open House invites you to be a tourist in your own city. Get out your camera and photograph the buildings and spaces you walk past every day; take a peek at how others live, work and play; and see how the city’s infrastructure works. Look up, look inside, climb a bell tower or descend into a basement, and take in the incredible views from different vantage points around town.
Some buildings require registration to visit and are limited by capacity. In true Tassie style, it’s first in, best dressed! So be sure to reserve your place – just follow the links where required.
You won’t get to see all the buildings in this year’s program, but you can try! Join our mailing list to get the first word on all Open House Hobart and Launceston news.
While you make your way around the city, please share your snaps with the world by using the hashtag #oh_hobart and you’ll go in the running to win some great Tasmanian loot.
To get the most out of Open House, we recommend you visit a variety of buildings . That way you can get a broader picture of how the city works. Try visiting a suburb you rarely go to or a building you find ugly; maybe your impression will change by learning more about it, maybe it’ll just reinforce what you already think! Either way, Open House Hobart and Launceston will help you understand how the city has been shaped and re-shaped over the past 200 years – and perhaps even get an insight into what lays ahead in the future.
Go on, take a look – you’re gonna love it!
