We went on a free public tour of Parliament House. It was full of very interesting history and beautiful artwork. The building is beautiful and the view spectacular. The guide was very friendly and catered for our group's needs. We were fortunate to sit in the gallery and view the upper and lower houses in session.
Definetly recommend the free tour. Only 45 mins and that's really all you need!
