Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I enjoyed the free tour of Parliament House. Our guide showed us both the House of Assembly, which sits in the Green Room, and the Legislative Council, which sits in the Red Room.

This State Heritage Place was built in 1883 and is also in North Terrace. It was built to replace the adjacent and overcrowded Parliament House, now referred to as "Old Parliament House", which is the Constitution Museum now and the only museum of political history in Australia

I visited South Australia's Parliament House with my Nanna while on a first time trip to Adelaide in August 2022. We got their just after they opened & were lucky enough to have a private tour, as the staff member wanted to take us through before the large school group that was following behind us. Our guide was very knowledgable & was happy to answer any questions. Adelaide's Parliament House was beautiful both inside & out. My favourite part was their small library. Parlament House conducts free tours for all visitors, with tours lasting about 1 hour.

I visited the Parliament of South Australia with my two children ages 7 and 8. We had a wonderful time where we enjoyed the stunning architecture and learning about the different houses and the interesting history of Parliament.

My son's most memorable moment was hearing about the speakers getting a maze to protect themselves because in Medieval times speakers were often beheaded for being the bearer of bad news.

We also got the opportunity to sit in at question time which was fascinating watching the way that the parties debated against each other.

Overall it was a great experience and will definitely take the children again when they get older so that they can continue to learn.

Parliament House is built of Kapunda Marble and West Island granite. It is fronted by majestic marble columns. Parliament House is the home of government for South Autralia. It can be inspected during sitting times, or you can book a free tour.

Parliament House is in North Terrace and is a State Heritage Place. It was built in stages from 1874 to 1939 due to financial restraints. The Old Parliament House was overcrowded and is now used as the Constitution Museum and referred to as the Old Parliament House. It is Australia's only museum of political history, You can go on a tour every day from 10-00am to 2-00pm except when Parliament when sitting and then if lucky can see Parliament sitting.

South Australia has a proud history of free government. It was the only Australian colony that was free of convicts. The State has a tradition of civic involvement, typified by Parliament House, which was built in neo-Gothic style. It has a Legislative Assembly (Lower House) and Legislative Council (Upper House). The Assembly is decorated in green and the Council in red. The 50-minute tour, which is gratis, is well worth the time spent.

Parliament House, Adelaide is a fine monument to democracy in South Australia. The 50-minute tour is well worth the time. It is a grand building, in neo-Gothic style. The Parliament consists of a Legislative Assembly (lower house) and Legislative Council (upper house). The total population of SA is 1.7 million, some 1.3 million live in the capital, Adelaide.

Parliamnt House is an impressive granite building on the corner of King Willaim and North Terrace and was first opened in 1889 with the west wing housing the House of Assembly and completed fifty years later in 1939 with the eastern sction. Not open when visited so no idea of what it is like internally but impressive outside
