Calling all architecture fans, folks keen to explore another side of Brisbane and just anyone who likes to peek behind closed doors. While Open House Brisbane isn't taking place physically in its usual guise in 2020, it is launching a new year-round tour and cultural experience program called Brisbane Open.

That means that, even when Open House can't take Brisbanites through 100-plus buildings around town in the condensed space of one weekend, it can still showcase the city's buildings and structures, let you peer beyond their facades, and welcome you into nooks and crannies that aren't usually open to the public — and on an ongoing basis, too. These are paid activities, but they'll obviously still help you wander around and discover more about this fine city of ours.

Fancy a walking tour of Paddington? That's on the agenda, and will showcase the area's cultural and architecture highlights. Prefer a jaunt over to Straddie to take a squiz at some island properties? Yes, you can do that as well.

Also on offer across various dates (and at various prices per event): a mosey down Ann Street and a look inside the Masonic United Grand Lodge, a stint searching for old signs in Burnett Lane, climbing up to the CBD's forgotten rooftops, learning all there is to know about the history of Fortitude Valley and exploring Woolloongabba.

Brisbane Open currently has events scheduled from Sunday, August 23–Saturday, October 17 — with more to be added as part of its year-round program. Head to its website for details and bookings.
