If you’ve got a kid who loves creating Lego lands or can’t get their head out of Minecraft, check out Gold Coast Open House this weekend.

Designed to encourage a love of architecture and design in our next gen creative thinkers, Gold Coast Open House unlocks the door to local buildings and spaces, many of which are usually closed to the public.

With 31 participating venues across the Coast, there’s a broad range of design and architectural appeal, with family-friendly venues welcoming even the littlest amateur architect.

Collect a free Gold Coast Open House passport at participating venues, then fill with stickers are you visit some of the Coast’s most innovative and iconic spaces. From Q1 and Skypoint to The Ecovillage at Currumbin and even Gold Coast University Hospital, there’s a broad range of locations and design styles to explore.

Little kickers will get a first-hand look at Cbus Super Stadium, Metricon Stadium and the new Coomera Indoor Sports Centre – just the thing to whet their sporting appetite for the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

Keep the competitive flame alive at the Gold Coast Sporting Hall of Fame at Owen Park, Southport with a display of sporting memorabilia associated with the Olympics and Commonwealth Games. Get inspired and learn more about medal-winning athletes who lived or trained on the Gold Coast.

Go behind the scenes at Gold Coast radio station 102.9 Hot Tomato to see where your local journos and presenters broadcast your daily news, and don’t miss out on the sausage sizzle, face painting and balloon artist to keep the kids entertained.
