For one weekend a year, Sydney Open unlocks the doors of the city’s most important, inspiring and intriguing buildings and spaces.

In November 2016 Sydney Open Ticket holders had the opportunity 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 invited 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 the next Sydney Open in 2017. The stories of more than 50 buildings are yours for the telling.
