Frequently Asked Questions

Some of the most common queries we get from people is how do I book for the event and when is it on? This year's event weekend is November 11/12.  The vast majority of the destinations will not require any kind of pre-booking, you can just turn up.  However, there are one or two destinations to which access will be either by booking or ballot.  Please make sure you read each destination's details on this website or in the printed program so you know when destinations are open and if it is subject to booking or ballot restrictions.


While Open House Perth would love to open each and every destination for the whole of the weekend this is simply not possible, so please remember to double check the destination details.


This year Open House Perth will once again be running its membership program which will give members advanced opportunity to book for tours, advanced copies of the printed program and a jump the queue pass to Open House Destinations.  This program is subject to a fee of $100 (+gst) per person with all proceeds going to make Open House Perth possible for future years. For further information please contact or call 0423 410 975.
