  • Didn't do the free tour. Just wanted to view it from outside. Nice architecture. Got to take some nice pictures. Get to take a break from all the walking by the steps.

  • 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 !👏🏻👍🏼
  • Standing on the east side of Melbourne’s CBD is the Parliament of Victoria. At one point in Australia’s history, this was the seat of power for the Australian Federation. As you approach the building from Bourke Street, the grand building - one of the most important heritage buildings in Melbourne - shapes into view
