Temporary restrictions at Parliament House

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, until further notice the public galleries in our two parliamentary chambers will be closed and public tours and community events will not be held at Parliament House.

We want to reassure everyone that this is a community health and safety measure and we will maintain the openness of our Parliament in these extraordinary circumstances through our live broadcasts and the public documents on our Parliament’s website.

Community members across Victoria can continue to view Parliament live, via our online broadcast, and read the transcripts of what is said in Parliament.

Accredited journalists will continue to have access to the Parliament and will continue to report on parliamentary proceedings.

We want to reassure the community that your Parliament will continue to work diligently to help address the current circumstances facing Victorians.

We will continue to monitor the situation and will act in accordance with the latest advice from health authorities.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
