Melbourne opens itself to the public this weekend

It's not everyday that you get to visit some of Melbourne's most historic buildings or sites that are usually never accessible to the public.  It's a great initiative and speaking from past experience I cannot recommend it enough.



Here is a quick guide:

Official Website
http://www.openhousemelbourne.org/program/


Aussie-traveller's recommended visits
-Manchester Unity Building
-Melbourne Town Hall and Offices
-RMIT Building 113 Captiol Theatre
-Newman College
-University of Melbourne (University House)
-Parliament House
-Melbourne Recital Centre

Some highlights
-100 Buildings opened
-3 mystery buildings
-Royal Melbourne Hospital Tunnels and Towers
-Redevelopped Hamer Hall (photo below)



Note
-BRING A CAMERA (most buildings encourage this but be careful if photography is forbidden...)
-Not all buildings are open on both Saturday and Sunday

Good luck and have fun! Take as many photos as you can as you'll have to wait another year for this opportunity to arise again.

Aussie-traveller welcomes people to share photos from the event on its Facebook page which you can access below.  Don't forget to 'LIKE' it and SHARE with friends!
