Visit Parliament

Visit Parliament House, Canberra, and experience Australia's robust democracy in action.


You can watch Question Time, see bills being debated, and sit in on committee inquiries as current issues are explored in detail.


You'll also find some of Australia's finest historical treasures and contemporary art on display throughout the building, and in our permanent and temporary exhibitions.


Parliament House is open 364 days a year, and you’re welcome at the meeting place of our nation.


Please note: significant construction activity is occurring at Australian Parliament House in 2018. While the building will remain open and accessible to the public, construction work will be taking place at the public entrance until October 2018 and some disruptions and delays may be unavoidable, especially at busy times. Please arrive in plenty of time, to allow for possible delays.


The western stairway from the public carpark will be closed during this period. The eastern stairway and lift remain open.


The Great Hall will be closed until early October 2018 while the skylight is refurbished. The closure is to ensure the safety of visitors and workers. We apologise for any inconvenience.
