What people are saying:

Victorian State Parliament is a beautiful building, it's just not this building from the above picture. Many of the photos on Gogobot for Melbourne & Victoria are not of the attractions they profess to be. State Parliament is really lovely though, there's about 7 million dollars worth of gold leaf in the detailing of the central chambers alone and they will show you around for free. Tours run for about an hour and run on days whenever parliament isn't in session.

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.
