THE Launceston public will have rare access to some of the city's most intriguing and historic buildings courtesy of the Rotary Club of Launceston this Sunday.
The club annually enlists a number of buildings and owners for specialised tours for its Doors Open Day and has this year secured 18 buildings around the city.
These include two 1840s Anglican churches, Launceston Town Hall, the School of Architecture and Design, Glasgow Engineering, the Ti-Tree Bend wastewater and treatment plant, and arguably one of Launceston's most grand buildings, the Albert Hall.
The hall was built in 1891 for 14,000 in the classical Victorian architectural style and covers a massive 14,000-square-metre area.
Doors Open Day co-ordinator Ken Bennett said the tour's most popular venues, the Launceston police station and Masonic Centre, were on the roster again this year.
He said the tour attracted 1800 people last year and provided to them a thoroughly entertaining day of exploration and information.
An all-day pass with access to all buildings can be bought at any venue on the day for $10.
A $5 pass will allow access to two buildings.
Pre-purchased tickets can be bought at St Lukes Health in the Quadrant Mall.
