About the tour

'Yeribee': Indigenous Experiences of Parliament House.

Hear the stories of our Indigenous parliamentarians and staff, explore the site history of Parliament House, gain insights into how Australia's First Peoples are participating in the nation's democratic processes, and enjoy significant artworks from the Parliament House Art Collection by celebrated Indigenous artists.

The tour will look at the Great Hall Tapestry, The Great Hall Embroidery, The Barunga Statement, The Apology to Australia's Indigenous Peoples, The Yirrkala Bark Petitions, recent portraiture commissions, and significant pieces from Indigenous artists from the Parliament House Art Collection.

'Yeribee' is the Ngunnawal word for 'Walk'. The United Ngunnawal Council of Elders have kindly allowed us to use the word as the name of our tour.

We recommend that you arrive at least 20 minutes before your tour for screening and check-in. All tours run subject to the operational needs of the Parliament.
