Event :: Open House Hobart, Saturday 22 November

1 Posted by - 20 November 2014 - Events, Feature stories

As the highlight of the Institute of Architects’ Hobart Architecture Week, Open House Hobart will allow history lovers an exclusive peek inside some of Hobart’s iconic buildings this Saturday 22 November. For just one day only, visitors can enjoy a behind the scenes tour through the city’s history, while locals can gain a new appreciation of the familiar.

Organisers encourage participants to bring their cameras and recommend you choose a variety of sites to visit. Some buildings require a reservation to gain entry, but most are first in best dressed. With over 30 sites open to visitors, including the St David’s Cathedral and Bell Tower, Theatre Royale and Henry Jones Art Hotel, you are unlikely to be disappointed.

There is a prize available for the person who manages to visit the most buildings, on foot or via public transport of course- leave the car at home! Post photos of your discoveries on social media with the hashtags #oh_hobart and #discovertasmania and you can also go into the draw to win some great prizes.

    Thank you so much for including attribution and a link. I think the cathedral circulated an image I’d passed on as thanks for access without including my details so you probably could not have been aware of its source. Your prompt attention to correcting it is much appreciated. :)
