Parliament House Canberra

See where Australia’s laws are debated and decided

While in recent years it has seemed to many observers as a place where party squabbles run roughshod over the national good, the seat of Australia's government is a grand building where visitors can freely explore all public areas and watch the House of Representatives and the Senate from the galleries on sitting days.

A fascinating free 40-minute tour departs five times a day, while the thrice-daily in-depth tour is 15 minutes longer and costs $10-$15, and the behind the scenes tour is $20-$25.
