About community tours
Tours are presented by experienced education guides from the Parliamentary Education Office and are for one hour.
A tour can be arranged for any weekday.
When Parliament is sitting, the group will view Parliament in progress from the public gallery of the Legislative Council and the Legislative Assembly chambers.
When Parliament is not sitting, the group will learn how the parliamentary process works from the floor of the Legislative Council and the Legislative Assembly chambers.
Meeting your local member
Community groups wishing to meet their local member while visiting Parliament House will need to contact the local member’s electorate office to determine availability. It is more likely that a member will be able to meet a group on a sitting day when the member is at Parliament House.
The minimum number of participants allowed in a community group tour is 10 and the maximum number is 25, although more than one tour can be booked if the number exceeds 25 people.
Following the tour, you may choose to watch the Legislative Council or the Legislative Assembly from the public galleries. Enter through either the Legislative Council or Legislative Assembly gallery doors.
Entrance to the galleries is by stairs. If you require lift access, please advise Reception Services at the main entrance.
