It took 65 years for this building to be erected, but despite major delays it’s a stately structure Aussies are seriously proud of. Daily tours provide access to Chambers and the chance to view historic documents, like the Magna Carta, up close and in person. Permanent exhibits on women in government and an impressive art collection—including one of the world’s largest tapestries and an outdoor sculpture garden—make this a cultural destination for visitors locally and aboard.
Parliament House is located at the corner of North Terrace and King William Road. It is open to the public every day of the year except Christmas from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in non-sitting weeks.
