Open House Adelaide

Discover Adelaide’s architectural secrets and history at Open House Adelaide, which is being held as part of About Time: South Australia’s History Festival. There are over fifty projects open for viewing over two days including historic buildings, churches, commercial buildings and houses. Open House Adelaide is completely free of charge but some buildings may require bookings before the event. Keep track of the programme and events via facebook and twitter, or sign up to the email list.

Buildings open include:

Government House (1840 – architect George Strickland Kingston); Freemasons Grand Lodge (1927 – architect John Quinton Bruce and William Harral); Adelaide’s second skyscraper, Shell House (1930 – architect McMichael & Harris) and Goldsborough House, built from welded steel and Sydney sandstone (1935 – architect F Kenneth Milne). Last year’s Adelaide Open House also included backstage tours of cultural venues such as Her Majesty’s Theatre and the Adelaide Festival Centre (pictured).
