  • This beautiful old building of 1856, Parliament buildings, has a beautiful neoclassical with several Greek columns that embellish even more.

  • 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
  • Interesting tour session about the parliament! Humorous parliament tour guide !👏🏻👍🏼

As you approach the building from Bourke Street, the grand building - one of the most important heritage buildings in Melbourne - shapes into view
