Overview

Round off your time in the capital with a visit to the award-winning National Electoral Education Centre, centrally located in the heart of the parliamentary triangle.

Check out the displays of historic election items and election advertising material. Enjoy a spectacular multimedia presentation about Australia's electoral history followed by fun in the interactive activity zone. A professional educator can then guide you through your very own election and you will discover just how preferences are distributed and how your own representatives are elected to the federal parliament.

It's a fun, myth busting, educational experience for visitors of all ages!
