From front street level (facing the tram tracks), are mainly steps & pillars with Victorian lights . Parliament house is user friendly also to "not so convenient" visitors, believe me, the government is really thoughtful for anybody & all visitors.
Its best to find out if there are sitting sessions whereby visitors are not allow in (whilst Parliament are in session or a bill is to be passed).
Please do check with security for these access.

Just for information, wedding photos taken here are done approximately on steps 10 onwards.
