Parliament in purple for King’s Coronation

08 May 2023

To honour the Coronation of His Majesty King Charles III and Her Majesty The Queen Consort, Parliament House was lit up in purple on 6 and 7 May.

Landmarks across Melbourne, including Flinders Street Station and Old Treasury Building, took part in the official tribute.

Decoration of public buildings on such occasions has been a time-honoured tradition in Melbourne, including past coronations many decades ago.
