Legislative Assembly for the ACT

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

The ACT Legislative Assembly is the youngest legislature in Australia.

From 1938, when the ACT was officially formed, until 1989, Canberra was administered by the Federal Government. Now Canberra residents elect their own assembly of 17 members.

The ACT Legislative Assembly is the only Australian Parliament responsible for both territory and local government functions, including health, education, economic development and tourism.

Visitors are welcome to visit the Assembly building to learn about important historical changes since self-government began, and how the system works.

The Assembly owns a collection of locally significant art, and hosts exhibitions in its public exhibition room.
