Canberra Parliament House


The most striking and readily recognisable feature of Canberra is Parliament House. Parliament House replaced Old Parliament House, and was officially opened on 9th May 1988 by Queen Elizabeth II.

Much of Parliament House is buried beneath Capital Hill. Though security has tightened since the 9/11 terrorist attacks in the US, Parliament House is still reasonably open.

Tourists can access the foyers, adorned with matching portraits of all Australia’s former prime ministers. Access is also available to the House of Representatives, and the Senate Building.

Access to the roof is also available, with sweeping views of the city.
