  • If you get the time and especially when parliament is not sitting, this free tour is well worth the time and effort.You won't be disappointed. 
  • Very pleasing to the eye, the architecture is stunning! Be sure to visit even if you don't go inside.
  • A beautiful historic building. So much history has been made behind those walls. Standing period at the top of Bourke St. A real Melbourne icon. Be sure to try and take advantage of the tours. Fascinating.
  • Very beautiful building, the Gold leaf adorning the pillars, ceiling and walls is something not to be missed. The historical tours are also very informative

As you approach the building from Bourke Street, the grand building - one of the most important heritage buildings in Melbourne - shapes into view
  • Make sure you do the tour, you'll learn things about parliament (and the queen) you never knew!
