Come and explore Parliament House, led by a professional guide who will escort you through the public areas of the building, including the grand Marble Foyer, the Great Hall with its vast tapestry, Members Hall, the chamber of the House of Representatives, the chamber of the Senate and culminating in a visit to the roof to gaze at the towering flagpole (and Canberra) from a whole new perspective!

Along the way you will be treated to information on the design and architecture of the building, an overview on the operation of the Houses of Parliament, and an explanation of some of the magnificent artworks you will see. There are no headsets or pre-recorded spiel, and questions are always welcome.

Additionally, your host, The Tree Whisperer, will take you for a private tour behind the scenes – you will literally walk the halls of power – plus you will visit manicured courtyards, view artworks by both renowned and emerging Australian artists and learn the truth about the famous ‘Budget Tree’! Along the way, listen to observations on what it is like to work at this iconic building, plus a few interesting anecdotes throw in for good measure!

At the conclusion of the tour, you can opt to come on a wander with your host to find the assortment of caches lurking within the native gardens that surround the ‘House on the Hill’.
