 The Parliament of Victoria is coming to Shepparton!

The presentations are part of activities celebrating the 50 year anniversary of the Committees Act 1968

From 14 to 16 November 2018, we’re visiting the towns of Mooroopna, Tatura, Numurkah and Nathalia. Join us for free interactive presentations on the Victorian Parliament, covering:

  • the history and role of Victoria Parliament and how it operates
  • how government is formed
  • the role of parliamentary committees
  • significant achievements of parliamentary committees
  • how local communities can participate in the parliamentary process


Experienced, non-political parliamentary officers to conduct the presentations. Video clips, props (including a replica Mace and gowns) and goggles for a 3D tour of Parliament House will also be included.

Refreshments will be provided, and there will be plenty of time for questions and an opportunity to chat with the presenters.

To register your interest, contact Yuki Simmonds on (03) 8682 2845 or email cso@parliament.vic.gov.au.
