Legislative Assembly for the ACT

Galleries, Museums and Collections

The ACT Legislative Assembly is Australia’s youngest legislature.

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 25 members.

They’re the only Australian parliament responsible for both territory and local government functions, including health, education, economic development and tourism.
