Parliament House Tours

Parliament House
Originally, when this Georgian-style, 19th-century building was built near Sullivan’s Cove, it was destined to be a custom’s house for Hobart’s developing trade. As the politics of the island increased, however, and “Van Diemen’s Land”—as it was then known, grew as an independent colony, the building was chosen to house the customs, as well as the city’s Parliament. Today, Hobart’s Parliament House has been a hub of politics since 1841, and is still the site where Parliament and lawmakers gather to govern the state.
 
On a guided tour of the Parliament House, learn the fascinating history of the building and all of its renovations, as well as tour the underground basement full of history, legends, and lore. On the outside of the buildings, the surrounding Parliament House gardens are a relaxing place to either go for a stroll or rest in the shade of an oak, before venturing over to Constitution Dock or nearby Salamanca Market.

Practical Info

Guided tours of the Parliament House are available on days when the Parliament isn’t sitting. Tours take place at 10am and 2pm and last about 90 minutes. On days when the Parliament is actively sitting, it’s still possible to watch the proceedings by viewing from the public gallery.
Address: Salamanca Pl, Hobart TAS 7000, Australia
Hours: Open Mon-Fri 9am-5pm
