Gold Coast Open House relies on volunteers to assist in the facilitation of visits by the general public to 56 buildings and walking tours across the city. If you have pride in your city and want to make a difference, register your interest to be an event volunteer as we unlock the doors to the Gold Coast’s most interesting buildings and spaces.
Celebrate the richness and diversity of the Gold Coast’s built environment at this unique one day event – and you can be part of making it come to life! See below for more information on General Building volunteers and Photography volunteers.
General Building Volunteers

Volunteers work one shift of up to four hours to help out in a variety of ways, which may include:
