Congress 9-12 March 2018
There’s been a fantastic response to Congress and we’ve reached our target of 300 early bird registrations two months early! We want as many people as possible to have the chance to come along to this major event at the early bird rate, so we’re keeping this open for the time being. But it can’t last – so if you are planning to attend Congress now is the time to get in at the discount rate. See the dedicated Congress website at for more.

Pay your goodwill forward - Volunteer for BOH 7/8 October 
Visit our website from midday 24 August to sign up to your favourite building
Never volunteered with us before? Our regulars keep coming back for the vibe on the street, the characters they meet and satisfaction of being part of something ‘bigger’ that celebrates Brisbane's unique subtropical architecture. 
Volunteers also receive ‘front of queue' access to most buildings in the program, a special edition collectable tote bag designed by our 2017 BOH local artist, Building Guidebook, and an invite to our volunteer thank you drinks at the end of the day.  Make it a date with your friends for maximum buzz
