Parliament House Open Day
Wednesday 14th March 2018
Leader of The Nationals and Member for Murray Plains Peter Walsh has issued an invitation to the people of Murray Plains Electorate to visit Parliament House for the Open Day Sunday 18th March 2018.
“The day offers visitors the chance to explore areas of Parliament not usually open to the public,” Mr Walsh said.
Visitors can see Queen’s Hall, they can sit in the Legislative Assembly and Legislative Council Chambers, and visit the magnificent Parliamentary Library.
They can also visit the committee room, see the Speaker’s and members’ offices, and enjoy morning and afternoon tea in the Member’s Dining Room or have lunch in the parliamentary gardens.
There will also be musical performances to enjoy in Queen’s Hall and the gardens.
“The architecture of Parliament House, especially the Legislative Council Chamber is quite remarkable.
“Over the years there have been refurbishments to Parliament House, but the Council Chamber remains one of the best examples of the style of building of its time and is well worth a visit.”
Mr Walsh said entry was free and there would be exhibits from all departments.
“This is a great opportunity for Victorians to see their Parliament and to gain an appreciation of the grandeur of the building.
