Really enjoy this experience. It's wonderful how the old rooms are set up with period telephones, typewriters etc. Another must do in Canberra
We always have to visit Old Parliament House when our granddaughter comes to visit us from interstate for her school holidays. She loves doing the discovery trail. This time all about the press...
This is a great place to visit to remember how democracy first started in Australia. The crammed rooms the politicians used, the old office equipment remind us of what it was like not so long...
