Unlocking historical houses of the GC

Open House Post Office & telegram office opening 1909

The city’s inaugural Open House day will take place this year – unlocking the doors of quirky, interesting and significant buildings and allowing Gold Coasters to take a behind-the-scenes tour of private places not typically available for public access.

From the old Southport Drill Hall constructed in 1890, to the Hot Tomato on-air studios in High Street, to the iconic 80s Paradise Waters mansion of Gold Coast pioneer Keith Williams, the public can discover what lies behind the closed doors of fascin

ating buildings and places they may have only ever seen from the street. Around 20 properties are listed for the inaugural Gold Coast Open House which takes place Saturday 17 October. More at goldcoastopenhouse.com.au.
