"Parliament" Parliament House Tip by saw50st8

Parliament House, Sydney: 2 reviews and 2 photos


We strolled by Parliament and decided to stop in. We wandered around the first floor which had beautiful architecture and some nice paintins from local artists. Even better, we were thirsty and they had a water cooler, so we got free water (which is expensive in Sydney!).

If you are there and its not lunch hour, you can watch parliament in session. You cannot take any pictures of people in the building (besides yourself).

Just remember -- free water!
