About Queensland Parliament

Step into Queensland Parliament, and you'll find yourself in a place where history isn't just written—it's crafted with the kind of care usually reserved for fine wines and Swiss watches. Nestled on the banks of the Brisbane River, this architectural marvel has been the epicentre of Queensland's political whirlwind since 1868. With its Corinthian columns and grand facade, it whispers tales of the past, not with a shout but with the dignified elegance of a seasoned storyteller.

It's not all about bills and debates; the building itself is a masterclass in design. Imagine floors so polished you can see your reflection, woodwork that tells the tale of Queensland's rich resources, and stained glass that colours sunlight with stories of governance.

Best time/season to visit:
Queensland Parliament is like that friend who's always ready to host, rain or shine. However, for the full experience, visit during sitting days to witness democracy in action from the public gallery. For a quieter visit, non-sitting days offer a more leisurely pace to explore the building's architectural beauty.
