Architecture tour of Parliament House
Join us for a free tour focusing on the architectural history and design of this Melbourne icon.
Facing the intersection of Spring and Bourke streets, the west facade of the building, with its sweeping steps, elegant lamps and grand colonnade, suggests solidity and strength.
However, appearances can be deceptive as the ambitious vision of 19th century architect Peter Kerr was never fully realised, leaving the building incomplete.
With features showcasing the wealth Victoria had accumulated from its gold and wool exports, a visit inside Parliament House is sure to delight anyone with an interest in architecture and historically significant buildings.
Please note that access to the Legislative Chambers and Parliamentary Library is subject to the availability of those spaces.
