Parliament House Tours
Parliament House is located in State Square at the end of Mitchell Street, adjacent to the Supreme Court of the Northern Territory and Government House.
It stands on one of the nation’s most significant historic sites. Overlooking the striking Darwin Harbour, the building rests on the site of the Post Office and Telegraph Station which were bombed during the first bombing raid on the Top End on 19 February 1942.
Parliament House in Darwin opened in 1994 and is a magnificent example of contemporary tropical architecture and you may choose to join a free guided tour or enjoy a leisurely self-guided tour.
You will visit all public areas and hear about the history of the site, the building, and the role of Parliament. One highlight of your tour is a visit to the gallery to view the Parliamentary Chamber, which reflects our Westminster history and tradition.. You will also see an original wall from the Post Office, which has been incorporated in the Historic Lobby and makes an impressive entry point to the Northern Territory Library. Other things to see include Sturt's Desert Rose Mosaic, the Main Hall, the Portrait Gallery of former Chief Ministers and Speakers of the Northern Territory, and a Time Capsule due to be opened in 2048.
