Sydney's Most MYSTERIOUS Buildings Are Opening Next Weekend
You may not know this, but each year, Sydney opens the doors to over 40 of it’s most famous and exclusive buildings for one weekend only.
The vast majority of these buildings are closed to the public all year round, and only open for this exclusive event; Sydney Open.
Hear from @tzgarchitects about their transformation of the old Eveleigh carriage workshops into the city's most ambitious contemporary arts centre as part of this year's Sydney Open on 4 and 5 Nov. @carriageworks is just one of over 40 buildings across the CBD, Redfern and Eveleigh that you can explore with a single Sydney Open Pass. Book now slm.is/open or link in profile. #sydneyisopen #architecture #sydneylocal Photo © Toby Burrows
A few of the buildings include City of Sydney Fire Station, Customs House, Parliament of New South Wales, Reserve Bank of Australia and The Mint!
Even better, there are a heap of talks and tours going on to fill your days and allow you to get to know Sydney like never before.
Sydney Grammar School has occupied an enviable site on the city fringe for nearly 200 years. In 2009, work began on a unique project that would culminate in the creation of a spectacular performance venue cut deep into the sandstone bedrock five storeys underground. The John Vallance Hall, designed by Andrew Andersons of @ptwarchitects, can accommodate 1500 people in a recital hall acoustically tuned for orchestral and choral music. Explore this space and others at the school with your Sydney Open Pass. Book your tickets via link in bio. #sydneyisopen #architecture #history #heritage Photo: Paul Eichorn
Tours of the Sydney Observatory, a mock trial of bushranger John Vane, and tours through the Mint - careful not to have sticky fingers, though!
An Open Pass will get you access to over 40 buildings on the Sunday, and entry into an exclusive range of tours and talks.
Be quick though, tickets for this event sell out every year - so you’ll want to be QUICK!
