From the commissioning of Australian Parliament House – when 25,000 high quality furniture pieces were commissioned – and through its 32 year history as its Art Collection grew to over 7,000 works – both art and furniture have been integrated into the building’s design detailing, symbolism, ethos and philosophy.
Our guide shares the stories of the pieces in the Marble Foyer, The Great Hall, Members Hall and the Main Committee Room, discussing design, history and symbolic meaning. As your tour walks you through Parliament House you will start to unravel the rich layers of meaning and thought behind each piece.
Participants in any paid tour or event can take advantage of a 10% discount in The Parliament Shop on the day of the tour or event.
