  • The meeting place of the Parliament of the State of victory, its construction began in 1855 and, although officially the building opened the following year, the works ended only in 1929. At the beginning of 1901 he had his moment of glory when he served as a meeting place for the Australian Parliament in the years when Melbourne was the temporary capital. Role that, starting from 1927, was covered by Canberra. Several were the architects who succeeded for its construction revisiting the projects and modifying them and in fact the original plans for the building included a large dome, but this part of the work was never realized. At the moment it is undergoing renovation to clean the façade and the majestic colonnade.

  • Parliament house at Melbourne has a beautifully built architecture. Very English. Getting here is quite easy, the central circle tram stops here. A lot of locals after getting married come here for their photo shoots. A must visit if your in Melbourne city.
  • Went for a free tour which was run very professionally. The lady was very knowledgeable and friendly. Was happy to answer various questions from the group. She spoke loud enough so that everyone could hear. The inside of the Upper and Lower Houses was very spectacular and ornate. Visited Oct 2018.
