Sydney Open 2017

Sixty historic and architecturally significant buildings will open to the public on 4 and 5 November for Sydney Open.

Now in its thirteenth year, Sydney Open is split into two distinct halves. On 4 November, behind-the-scenes “focus tours” will run at some of the city’s most recognizable spaces and buildings.

The next day, on 5 November, a dense cluster of more than 40 buildings across the CBD, Redfern and Eveleigh will open their doors for drop-in visitors, allowing for the creation of custom itineraries

The 2017 program sees the return of iconic sites like the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Hyde Park Barracks, designed by convict architect Francis Greenway, and Harry Seidler’s Grosvenor Place, plus the addition of several recently completed, architecturally significant buildings.
