Nice architecture

I enjoyed spending some time exploring this as part of a tour. Recommended if you're interested in politics, architecture, or if you want to kill some time in the city.

If you are lucky to arrive during the tour times it is definitely worth going to. The different sections of the house (which you may see on TV at times) bring about the importance of the different houses and the tour guide explains what happens during the sittings, etc.

The blackstone façade with Roman columns is a feature along north terrace. There are free tours on non sitting days which are fairly short but worth the effort. The lower house most interesting for its ceiling. Recommended if you have an interest in houses of Parliament or great architecture.

We were just walking past and saw there were tours. Would not recommend unless a very rainy day. It is a very short tour, the lady who took us around was not very informative and most of the time was unable to answer questions and was also confused between the parliaments and even who the members were! Really!!!

Situated on North Terrace, The Parliament House is South Australia’s state legislative seat. This is actually the newer building as the Old Parliament House has become too small for their use. The architecture of the building seems to have been inspired from other great halls in other parts of the commonwealth, with large Greek columns dominating the facade of the... More

I was there for the official opening for OzAsia Festival this year 2016. I love to be there. Good experience for me. And then I took picture in front of this classic building. It was fantastic. You can find this building so easy near the Adelaide railway centre and Adelaide festival centre

This cathedral is well worth a visit. It is very much in the traditional old world mould but is a marvellous place for meditation and prayer

Parliament House is a good and brief stop for tourists in the area, it is clean and has lush gardens outside and makes for a perfect photo op.

Unfortunately we did not manage the timing to go inside the building but walking around looking at the outside is worth it on its own. It is truly another stunning example of the many amazing architecturally interesting and unique buildings in the Adelaide city.
