Welcome tour at Parliament House

About the experience

See the most significant features of Parliament House in the company of an expert guide.

We visit both chambers of Parliament and discuss their role in Australia's democracy. This brief introduction begins your own exploration of our building, public spaces and collections. After this experience, enjoy a coffee or meal at the Queen’s Terrace Café.
