Gold Coast Open House 2017

The Gold Coast might be known for its sandy beaches, sizeable array of shopping strips and more than a couple of theme parks, but beyond all that lurks plenty of interesting and architecturally significant buildings. Luxe bungalows, towering residential buildings, huge dams, grassy bowls clubs, the worlds first sand by-pass system, cute little granny flats... the list goes on.

It's a side of the Goldie most of us never ponder, and it's on display come November 4. That's when Open House hits the sunny tourist spot, with more than 40 places welcoming anyone who'd like to take a sticky beak.

Remember your childhood dreams of getting to run rampant in a department store after hours? Or your grown-up version, involving IKEA? Think of this as a more realistic version, as well as a way to satisfy your architectural and design curiosity. As well as touring an array of the coast's top spaces, the program includes a talk about happiness in high-rises on November 1 — aka a very apt topic for the location.
