“awesome building, bad lunch option.”
Reviewed 15 August 2012

Really beautiful building with lots of nooks and crannies. You can even go onto it's roof and enjoy a fabulous view over Canberra! It is of course a parliament which means big parts of it are off limits to the common folk and you must pass through a security check to get in. Their cafe is overpriced and serves badly cooked lukewarm food (and I am not the only one who thinks that!).

“Great tour”
Reviewed 14 August 2012

The free tour of this building is well worth taking if you have a spare 45 minutes in Canberra. The tour guides are very well informed.

“Hand Stands on the roof of Parliament House”
Reviewed 14 August 2012

We live in this wonderful country, so very carefree, how many countries in the world, would enable an 8yr old to do handstands on the roof of Parliament House. Once again the tour was presented in an easy to understand manner. Thank You

“Surprisingly Enjoyable”
Reviewed 8 August 2012

My visit was very much a spur-of-the-moment job. Once inside I was pleasantly surprised at how accessible most of the Parliament was to visitors and was impressed by the sense of history and the amount of information available. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
The views from the terrace cafe are great.
