The public will also have the opportunity to board boat tours for guided tours at South Stradbroke Island, visit a sky-high four-level Surfers Paradise penthouse, and venture inside public utilities that are usually kept closed to the public.

There’s plenty for the kids to explore too, with the opportunity to step inside a fire station and learn more about what goes on at a TV newsroom.

The 2019 program also has guided walking tours and for the first time, a bus tour will visit three architect-designed beach houses over the border.
