Many of the sites will only be open to the public for the duration of Melbourne Open House, so it’s definitely an opportunity not to be missed.


The official details:

The program can be pre ordered online and will be available from the 10 July from melbourneopenhouse.org and the Metlink office at Melbourne Town Hall or the Information Centre at Fed Square.

The event is part of the 2011 State of Design Festival, which runs from 20 – 31 July.
