I've been to Parliament House several times over the years. I think all Australians would want to see it for themselves and hopefully at a time when they can see our elected representatives in debate. I'm not sure if the building and the contents would be very edifying for non-Australian visitors.
On this visit I only dropped in for a short time hoping to see the end of Question Time in the House of Reps. I only ended up catching a part of a debate on the amendments to a bill in a near empty house.
My main tip for visitors when Parliament is in session is to listen to ABC Radio National (the Parliamentary broadcaster 2PB on 103.9MHz in Canberra) on your way to and from Parliament House. This way you will be able to put the session that you see in a better context and will get to hear the result of "your" debate if it is still going when you depart.
