Victoria's Parliament House is one of Australia's most distinguished public buildings. It boasts a rich history and plays an active part in our democracy. You can witness this by attending a tour, dining at one of our restaurants or attending the public gallery on a sitting day. The Legislative Assembly and Legislative Council public galleries are currently closed to the public on sitting days until further notice.
