  The lovely Parliament House in Hobart.
by seamandrew

Originally designed by famous convict architect John Lee Archer as a customs house, this large sandstone two-storey building was constructed using convict labour between 1835 and 1840. After self-governance was granted to Tasmania in 1856, the building was modified to suit parliamentary use. The lower floor now houses an historical museum and interesting historical documents are available for viewing.

Open 10am-4pm Mon-Fri.
