Old Parliament House Gardens offer a pleasant, rose filled place to pause in the heart of the Parliamentary Zone. Located on either side of Old Parliament House are the House of Representatives Garden and Senate Garden.

The roses in this garden were planted during the Great Depression. When parliament moved, the gardens were opened to the public. They were restored in 2004 to their current beauty.

The Old Parliament House Gardens are available for public and corporate functions. Call the National Capital Authority for garden-related enquiries.

“Decent gardens.”

Reviewed on 14/01/2020

These are pretty decent gardens, located next to the old Parliament building.
There are some lovely flowers and fountains in the gardens.

“Lovely & quaint little place next to the Old Parliament House”

Reviewed on 08/01/2020

Chanced upon the gardens en route to the Old Parliament House and I would say it is a really nice and relaxing place to stop by for a while to look at the flowers.

“Amazing Wisteria”

So many bees on Wisteria in full bloom. Peaceful garden with a tribute to the women in politics. Stunning colour.
