Parliament House

Galleries, Museums and Collections Landmarks and Buildings

See democracy in action at Australia’s iconic Parliament House high on Capital Hill. During Question Time see the country’s elected politicians make the big decisions on behalf of the nation.

Take a guided tour, visit the popular Queen’s Terrace Cafe and view historic documents and see an impressive collection of Australian art including one of the world’s largest tapestries based on an Arthur Boyd design.

Special note: the roof is closed to the public until 25 July 2018, this is while we move some construction scaffolding associated with our skylight refurbishment program. The closure is to ensure the safety of visitors and workers. Apologies for any inconvenience.

We are still open and ready to welcome you!
