Parliament House Tours

Parliament House
Australia’s newest parliament house was built in Darwin in 1994, and has been the seat of the Northern Territory Legislative Assembly since then. It was designed in a postmodern style and built to suit the tropical climate of Darwin. The entrance features a Northern Territory coat of arms placed at the top of its ceremonial doors. 

The building overlooks Darwin Harbor, sitting on the site of the former Post Office and Telegraph Station which were bombed during a raid in 1942. There is a state library, portrait gallery, and a massive Main Hall indoors, and the Speakers Green outdoor. The areas function both as parliamentary and government receptions and public exhibitions. Unique tributes to the symbols of the Northern Territory, such as a desert rose in the reception foyer, are present throughout.

Practical Info

Darwin’s Parliament House is located on Mitchell Street in the State Square at the center of the city. It is open Monday to Friday from 8 am to 4:30 pm, and free guided tours available on Saturday mornings.
Address: Mitchell Street, State Square, Darwin NT 0800, Australia
