Registrations are opening soon

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

We will soon be looking for new volunteers to join the team — 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 love Open House, and have ever thought about volunteering, 2022 is a great time to get involved as we reconnect with our city.  

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