On Sunday 1 November 2015, Sydney Open threw open the doors to the city’s most treasured and architecturally inspiring buildings.
Thanks for being a part of it.
We’re already preparing for next year’s event with new locations and great new experiences. Mark Sunday 6 November 2016 in your diary.
From Utzon’s famous curves at Bennelong Point to Gehry’s rippling brickwork in Ultimo, Sydney Open brings together the city’s towering triumphs. See the mastery from outside and within, where their secrets are yours for the telling.
Every step you take during Sydney Open, you’re retracing the footsteps of the people who have gone before you. Sydney Open brings their stories to life, from St James’ Church to the cells of Justice & Police Museum guarded by sandstone walls.
For one day, the city of Sydney becomes a giant canvas for you to explore. See art treasures hidden away behind closed doors, such as the impressive Australian contemporary art collection at 50 Martin Place and be surprised by the art that is around us, but often unnoticed.
Cracking open the doors to off-limit areas gives photographers the chance to capture fleeting moments that won’t be repeated for another year, whether it’s the magnificent harbour view from Australia’s first skyscraper or taking inspiration from Max Dupain’s famous shot of Australia Square.
