For one weekend a year, Sydney Open unlocks the doors of the city’s most important, inspiring and intriguing buildings and spaces.
Join us this November to see inside Sydney heritage treasures and architectural landmarks, from the CBD to Barangaroo, Walsh Bay and The Rocks.
From historic buildings tracing the story of Sydney’s beginnings, to award-winning new buildings and space that will shape the fabric and cultural life of the city for generations to come, Sydney Open invites you in to see our past, present and future with special access and expert guided tours.
For anyone curious about their city, this is a weekend-long celebration of living architecture – not just buildings, but their stories of innovation and occupation, of triumph and intrigue.
Come and explore the unexplored during Sydney Open. The stories of more than 50 buildings are yours for the telling.
We are excited to announce two new tours on the program - Sydney Town Hall Clock Tower and St Mary’s Cathedral Bell Tower. Book your Sydney Open Tickets to win access.
Each year, Sydney Open’s success depends on the generosity and spirit of our enthusiastic volunteers, the hundreds who work tirelessly either at the sites or behind the scenes, to help everyone have a memorable experience. Join our ranks, and see Sydney Open from a different perspective.
A new addition to the Sydney Open program, our VIP ticket gives 200 privileged people priority access at all Sydney Open sites, along with a place at a pre-briefing session lead by some of Australia’s leading architects. We will send you an ID lanyard in the post, which you’ll need to have with you on the day. The VIP upgrade includes your Sydney Open Ticket price.
