Sydney Parliament HouseSydney's spectacular Parliament House is almost identical to the closeby Mint Building and was completed in 1816. Featuring elegant architecture, a sandstone façade, two storeys, verandas and a number of important collections, the public gallery in Parliament House is only open on days when Parliament is in session.

Originally constructed as the northern wing of the Rum Hospital, Parliament House has been used by the Legislative Council since 1829, making it the oldest continually operated parliament building in the world. Parliament House is located near to Sydney's Martin Place train station, in the Central Business District (CBD) of Sydney.

Open: guided tours, Monday to Friday - 09:30, 11:00, 12:30, 14:00 and 15:00
