Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / Australian Capital Territory / Canberra / Parliament of Australia
Watch Australian government at work and receive a lesson in impressive modern architecture at Parliament of Australia. The immaculately landscaped, 32 hectare (79 acre) site features a long, low building resembling a boomerang from the front with four diagonal legs supporting a massive Australian flag on the roof. Inside, you'll find about 4,700 rooms and many publicly accessible areas. Join a guided tour. Lasting 45 minutes when government isn't sitting and 30 minutes when it is, a guided tour will bring you to the Chambers to watch Question Time and into viewing areas for important documents like the Magna Carta. You can't miss the tapestry in the Great Hall: It's one of the world's largest. Head to the rooftop for expansive views of Canberra, and grab refreshments in the Queens Terrace cafe.
