“Much better than Parliament House”
If you want to see our founding documents.. how Australia got started.. go to NAA. Definitely ask for a tour.. else it might just seem like a pile of papers. They have regular exhibitions here too...
Excellent presentation. In a short time this government set up so much for the future and the display gave a very interesting history on the legislation that was passed. Much was achieved during this...
This is an interesting place to visit. The displays are detailed and informative. Allow at least 2-3 hours.
