Situated on North Terrace, The Parliament House is South Australia’s state legislative seat. This is actually the newer building as the Old Parliament House has become too small for their use. The architecture of the building seems to have been inspired from other great halls in other parts of the commonwealth, with large Greek columns dominating the facade of the... More

I was there for the official opening for OzAsia Festival this year 2016. I love to be there. Good experience for me. And then I took picture in front of this classic building. It was fantastic. You can find this building so easy near the Adelaide railway centre and Adelaide festival centre

This cathedral is well worth a visit. It is very much in the traditional old world mould but is a marvellous place for meditation and prayer

Parliament House is a good and brief stop for tourists in the area, it is clean and has lush gardens outside and makes for a perfect photo op.

Unfortunately we did not manage the timing to go inside the building but walking around looking at the outside is worth it on its own. It is truly another stunning example of the many amazing architecturally interesting and unique buildings in the Adelaide city.

At first we did not realise that the building over the road was in fact parliament building, as it was so open to the public,but on walking up the steps( and they are steep)we could not enter as it was a weekend. It has a fantastic view down Collins Street

When in Adelaide a public tour of Patliament house is a must . It is one of the prettiest parliament buildings around. The lower house ceiling is amazing. Tours only run on non sitting days so check the website

This building along with the General Post Office and Town Hall are some of the older buildings in the city along with several cathedrals and it's a fine example of a time when built to last really meant something. The architecture and design are great and can be enjoyed even if you're an amateur so stop by for a few... More

Interesting history about the building, library with very old books - in particular the one with an inscription from Queen Victoria, Magna Carta (a first reprint from memory with translation), maps and facts about SA Parliament in general. Really glad we made the visit.
