Take time to visit National Parliament House, the country's parliament building that combines old and new architecture. Artistic mosaics grace the building's exterior walls, and inside more displays await. A large wood carving depicts the country's four areas, while glass cases hold insect collections that include huge species and even the native Queen Alexandra's Birdwing. Be aware that photography is not allowed within the attraction. To be safe, go with a local guide, as bandits are known to peruse this area.
