Watch Question Time
Question Time—when Parliament scrutinises the work of the government—takes place on sitting days in both the House of Representatives and the Senate, and is a very popular time for people to visit. It usually starts at about 2pm in both houses.
On most sitting days, you can watch Question Time. There are 388 seats available for the public to view proceedings in the House of Representatives Public Galleries.
If you have a Question Time ticket, you must arrive in time to be seated by 2pm. After this time, empty seats will be given to visitors who have not booked tickets.
If you do not book tickets, you may be able to view Question Time if you arrive prior to 2pm.
Bookings aren't necessary for Question Time in the Senate.
