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.
INCLUSIONS: Privately-hosted talks and tours; Exclusive access to the Art & Furniture Collections; High Tea; Day concludes with gin tasting and presentation of gift tote bag with publication Interwoven and McHenry’s APH gin.
