Get behind the scenes at QPAC

Brisbane Open House is a free event, providing residents and visitors with the rare opportunity to discover the hidden wealth of architecture, engineering and history in buildings and places around Brisbane City.

Held annually in conjunction with World Architecture Day, selected buildings are opened for the public with guided and self-guided tours to encourage them to explore, re-examine and engage with Brisbane’s built environment – opening eyes and minds to good design and curious spaces.

For the tenth year, QPAC will be involved in this initiative, providing visitors with access to a series of free backstage tours, self-guided foyer tours, performances and exhibitions.
