Year round Architecture Tours of Melbourne

There is a great variety of architecture in Melbourne and visitors always comment on the diversity of the built environment. Even though Europeans have been building in Melbourne for only 176 years, Melbourne has been designed by a number of skilled architects.

The Open House Melbourne tour will highlight a number building periods which includes some of the newest buildings and architectural styles. From Reed to Katsalidis, we showcase some great local architecture and historic buildings.
Not only can you see buildings that are influenced by a Samurai warrior, a surveying stick or designed to show off money from the goldrush period, you will learn of some of the most sustainable buildings in the world.

This Architectural tour is run by MELTours on behalf of Open House Melbourne. Open House Melbourne is a not-for-profit association that runs annual events providing the public a free and rare opportunity to discover a hidden wealth of architectural, engineering and historic buildings nestled around the city. Anyone interested in learning more about Melbourne should put July 27 and 28 in the diary for 2013. 

At the conclusion of the tour, you will be able to relax over coffee and discuss the various architectural styles seen and the impact of Melbourne's urban planning.
