“We are all secretly curious about the buildings we drive past and walk past everyday that form our city,” he said. “This is your chance to get into those buildings and see the history and hear some of their stories.”

With so many spaces open this year, Mr Ewart said locals will need to plan ahead.

“You won’t be able to get around all 40 buildings on the day, so you have to pick the ones you are most attracted to and set a timetable for yourself to get through them.”

Gold Coast Open House is also seeking expressions of interest from volunteers to work at the event. For more information, visit: goldcoastopenhouse.com.au
