Darwin's Parliament House is located on Mitchell Street, State Square Darwin. Darwin's Parliament House opened in 1994 and it has been the seat of the Northern Territory Legislative Assembly since 1994. It's Australia's newest governmental building.



With the hot Darwin climate in mind, Darwin's Parliament House has lots of open spaces where natural light can come through. This post-modern building also has a touch of Aboriginal presence, combined with an influence of both the north and south region.

One highlight of your tour at this open day will be a visit to the Parliamentary Chamber which reflects the Westminster history and tradition, on which Australia's parliament is structured. It will be very interesting and you can imagine what will be like when Parliament is in session.
