What a great weekend!

I only found out about Sydney's open house on Friday but knew I had to be there so wangled enough client meetings to justify the last minute fare.

It was much bigger than Melbourne's (which in no way means to downgrades the fantastic job the Melbourne people do) which means the crowds at each venue were a bit smaller. I didn't have time to do detailed homework on what I should visit so I was a bit haphazard. The highlights were the fantastic art deco buildings and some of the contemporary ones. The only photos I have are from my iPhone so I am wary to post them given the great photographs your regular users put on this site, but I'll see if I can select a few of the less daggy ones and put them up here.

The Sydney Open 2010 held by the Historic Houses Trust is split into 2 different events. The Focus Tour and the City Pass Tour.

The Focus Tour was held on 6 – 7 November 2010 where you could visit 18 domestic, fragile or limited capacity sites led by their architects or owners. Most of these were sold out well before the weekend of the tour – cost $30 each site. Some owners did not allow photographs to be taken.

18 sites were:
- Central Station Tunnels
- Cove Apartments
- Glebe Residence
- Killara House
- Moebius House by Tony Owen
- Northern Suburbs Crematorium
- Paddington Reservoir Gardens
- Pavilions on the Bay
- Queen Victoria Building dome
- Rippon House
- Spencer House
- St. Andrew’s College & The Great Hall
- Sydney College of the Arts – Former Rozelle psychiatric hospital
- Sydney Opera House
- Tank Stream – a vital resource for colonial Sydney
- The Jack House
- The Rockpool
- The secret history of Callan Park
