Small Parliament building built in 2 phases and there is a clear contrast between the phases. It's free entry and tours are available for people with an interest in politics and/or architecture

These free tours take place every day at 10:00 and 14:00 when Parliament isn’t sitting and are a hidden delight. Our knowledgeable and friendly guide patiently answered all our questions over 40 minutes and we left much better informed about the whole parliamentary process.

Parliament House is one of Adelaide’e most impressive buildings and is well worth a look when in town. A great place for a photo opportunity or to take a tour.

Maybe not as elaborate externally as some parliament buildings but very grand and built adjacent to the very interesting old Parliament House that preceded federation. Tours are conducted most days, once in the morning and once in the afternoon, provided parliament is not in session....More
