What travelers say:

This is a Victorian building preserved by the city of Melbourne. It has a long cloister, tall pillars, and there are many decorations on the capital and foot of the pillar. The whole building adopts the Gothic style and is still very magnificent.

Additional Information

Introduction

The Parliament of Victoria is one of the most important unfinished buildings in the history of Australia. Commenced in 1855, it does not have a dome, a northern wing or a southeastern basement, though they were included in the plans. Still, that did not stop Parliament from convening there as it has for over 150 years. You can see how parliamentary democracy works by taking a free, guided tour from 10 AM until 3:45 PM on days that Parliament is not sitting. However, Parliament only has around 50 sitting dates a year, making it likely for you to get a chance to visit.
