More than politics tour—a signature experience

Visitors enjoy high tea on the Signature Experience tour

About the tour

Enjoy once-in-a-lifetime, below-decks and behind-the-scenes access to Australian Parliament House, along with a fine dining experience.

Visitors will build an understanding of architect Romaldo Giurgola’s unique vision—from its European origins to its Australian materials and interpretation that caps Walter Burley-Griffin’s Canberra plan.

In-house chefs will prepare a High Tea with seasonal offerings, and a sampler of local Canberra-region wines (or beers, if that's more to your taste). Walk away with stories of your exclusive look at one of the country’s lesser-known but most significant art and furniture collections, as well as a gift tote bag including Interwoven by Pamille Berg on the commissioned art and craft of Australian Parliament House and a bottle of Parliamentary Librarian’s Gin produced exclusively for us by McHenry’s Distillery, Port Arthur. Your day finishes with a tasting of our in-house gin (and tonic) and some tasty delicacies.

We recommend that you arrive at least 20 minutes before your tour for screening and check-in.
