  • Parliament house at Melbourne has a beautifully built architecture. Very English. Getting here is quite easy, the central circle tram stops here. A lot of locals after getting married come here for their photo shoots. A must visit if your in Melbourne city.
  • Went for a free tour which was run very professionally. The lady was very knowledgeable and friendly. Was happy to answer various questions from the group. She spoke loud enough so that everyone could hear. The inside of the Upper and Lower Houses was very spectacular and ornate. Visited Oct 2018.
