Brisbane City, Brisbane Area
A visit to Queensland Parliament House allows you to experience the grandeur of Queensland's first and foremost public building. Built in 1868, the beautifully restored interior showcases Queensland's history, as shaped by the governments and laws that have been made in the Parliament.
The Queensland Parliament remains the only state parliament in Australia without an Upper House. Walk inside and wonder at the lush red and gold leaf decoration and the grand staircase. Watch the Queensland State Parliament in action from the visitors' gallery and take a free half hour tour of Parliament House and its collection of antiques. A gift shop sells souvenirs and memorabilia from the main foyer.
