Parliment house is a cross of modern and traditional architecture, built in the traditional Long house style of many regions in PNG, with the front decorated in traditional pictures and motifs.
In my opinion this building is one of the most interesting and beautiful government house's anywhere in the world. Situated in the main government are close to forein embasy's, the national library and museum and is surrounded by green lawns and lush gardens.
I dont think they do tours for the general public, and you wont be able to gain access when parliment is on so it might be worth phoning ahead to make sure you can visit. A grand building, it is just above the level of the surrounding land and so stands like a monument overlooking the Waigani area. When your flying into port moresby try and get a look of it out of the plane, as jackson airport is just over the hill and in the flight path.
There is a restaurant inside that caters for diplomats and also a little canteen out the front for workers. A small man made lake at the front is full of barramundi and you are able to feed them with food scraps. Each year they have a competition for the school kids to see who can catch the largest one.

I travelled with Nuigini Eco tourism service. They provided an excellent guided tour. Accomodation and food was provided. Every place I went to I was pick up by a local guide. The guide would take me to native villages where I could meet the local people.They were very friendly. They would dress traditional and dance for me. It was a trip with a difference. I enjoyed every minute of it.
