My 3 year old and i love exploring old parliament house, especially Play Up! A purpose built area for children. It's a very welcoming space! Staff are all lovely and very relaxed with children exploring. The cafe also makes great coffee, very impressed they have lactose free milk!
We took the guided tour and our tour guide made this a great stop. He had interesting little bits and pieces to add and was able to tailor the tour to the people in the group. If you are thinking of coming here I would say take the guided tour for the extras that you will get. Hopefully you will get Murray like we did. Just a note that the first room is difficult to hear in because of echo and other things going on but the rest of the tour is easy to hear.
Canberra is a nice place, the capital of Australia. small but clean and people are good. The restaurants and stores closes early. The night is quiet. So you better go out early.
Old Parliament House Canberra houses the Museum of Australian Democracy. You can self guide or take a guided tour. Walk through the King's Hall sit in the leather chairs of both the old Senate & House of Representatives Chambers. Take a look at the Prime Ministers Suite. Well worth the visit.
Exceptional. Loved it. Missed the tour unfortunately but self explore was still lots of fun. Lots to see and do within the old worldly charm of fascinating architecture and wood panelling... 5 bucks for a family was unexpexted but decent as I suppose they use that for the upkeep of the building. I can imagine the go through a little bit of "Mr Sheen". Cheers.
