Registrations are now open

Our volunteers are a vital part of making Open House Melbourne a success. We couldn’t do it without them!  

We are looking to recruit both old and new volunteers — from students, to retirees, to die-hard architecture fans, we encourage everyone to apply — the diversity of Open House volunteers is part of what makes our program so special.

This year’s Open House Weekend will be held on the weekend of 30 + 31 July 2022. If you already love Open House Melbourne or have thought about donning the pink vest, then now is a great time to sign up and get involved.  

Keep an eye out for registration updates via our website, social media channels and e-newsletter.
