Melbourne’s pretty big, but it seems small sometimes when you can’t enter so many joints.

Open House Melbourne offers us a bit of freedom to check out all those spots you’ve always wanted to check out a bit better. Melbourne’s coolest places open their doors wide open this weekend, so you can check out all the architectural and historical stuff, and bits of buildings where no-one usually lets you go.

A hundred landmark hotels, churches, stadiums, universities and other rad buildings all over north, south, east, west and central Melbourne are free to wander into. The Supreme Court of Victoria, St Paul’s Cathedral, Rod Laver Arena and many other areas are all public for everyday civilians.

Go get intimate with the city we love and check the website for deets of places to raid, I mean, look.

WHEN: Saturday 28 – 29 July
WHERE: All over the city, everywhere!

The myth that the date Friday the 13th brings bad luck will be proven wrong once and for all thanks to the people enjoying the top bands at the Black Friday night to re-launch The Federation Bells.
