I have a friend who works at the parliament. He invited me to the restaurant for lunch - just lovely place with view of the park! If you have a chance, you should go there. You need to be accompanied to the restaurant, but just a visitor tour will give you a different experience which can be a bit more... More

I was fortunate to be invited by a local MP to dine at Parliament House. This is history itself, and a very civilised place to dine

I was lucky enough to be in Sydney when the NSW Parliament was having an Open Day, where myself and other visitors were able to wander through almost the entire building; a building which is truly impressive and worth a visit on a normal day as well. The Legislative Council and Assembly Chambers are smaller than they look on TV... More

Definitely worth a visit ! Free public lunch time (1pm start) tour runs for 1 hour (Monday-Friday), no bookings required. The guides are informative, info presented in a manner easy to digest for all ages. My kids (9 and 11 yo) and I really enjoyed the experience. Look up their website prior to visiting and ensure there is no sitting... More

Rather more quiet on an off day than when the pollies are tearing holes in each other. A fine building and some interesting information on our democracy.

Australia's oldest Parliament. Facade's OK but the interior is dowdy early-Victorian. You can go when one of the houses is sitting and find out why NSW is so poorly managed.

Location where so much to see in Sydney. NSW Parliament, well what can one say? The interior of the building doesn't excite one much.

Mainly a peaceful place, except when parliament is in session. An excellent location for conference functions, dinners, etc with a peaceful outloook east across the domain. Located in one of Australia's most historic streets, with good ajacent offerings, such as the State Library, Art Gallery of NSW, the Mint and the colonial barracks.
