  • The best tourist information centre I have ever seen. Large, clean and tidy. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Strongly recommend going their 1st. They will give you a map of Canberra, then ask what your interested in. Highlight these areas on the map for you and you keep this and take away with you. Brilliant.
  • Very informative! Knowledgeable friendly staff. Great photos and maps/plans for Canberra! Who knows about Marion Mahony Griffin? - his wife and architect and colleague who made an equally valuable if not greater input into the design of Canberra! A wonderful discovery.... at the exhibition!
  • Enjoyed learning about the history of the capital. And the tourist information centre/gift shop attached is pretty good too.
  • I really liked this place I do like debating and a tiny bit of politics. But after coming here I'm almost addicted to politics. I guess everyone has there own opinions. But seeing the place has really been amazing you get to see the voting place the seating the history and so much more knowledge. I recommend this place.
  • Excellent Capt. Cook exhibit. Beautiful stained glass windows. Lovely bookstore.
