Opening the doors

Southbank locations were among the most popular as Melbourne’s iconic buildings opened their doors for the annual Open House Melbourne festivities last month.

The Arts Centre’s Hamer Hall, with 3911 visitors over the weekend, was the most popular in Southbank, while the Victoria Police Mounted Branch also recorded high visitation number, welcoming 2575 through its doors.

The Arts Centre’s theatre building had 809 visitors, while MTC’s Southbank Theatre attracted 420. The Guilfoyle had 268 people visit while the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre had 240.

Open House spokesperson, Robert Larocca, said despite poor weather on July 26 and 27, plenty of Melburnians wanted to see a side of the city they didn’t usually have access to.

“Now in our sixth year it’s simply remarkable how many people come out in the middle of winter to enjoy the city’s best and most fascinating buildings and places,” Mr Larocca said.
