NSW Parliament House in Macquarie Street Sydney
History, fun facts and a unique way to learn about how Parliament works await you with this event (now in its eighth year) again highlighting historical events with entertaining theatrical re-enactments.
Prominent 'ghosts' from Parliament's past will be brought to life and regale visitors with captivating stories of triumphs in our political history. Who knows? You may even see how the Sydney Olympics of Year 2000 were won.
Also, the Legislative Chambers are open so everyone can take their seats on the benches to get a feel of what happens in this historic room.
Winning the Olympic Games for Sydney is just part of NSW Parliamentary history.
Other areas rarely opened to the public can be explored as well, but there is even more to do. Your whole family can experience all this history along with arts & crafts stalls, story-telling, role plays and guessing competitions. Children's trails is another favourite so bring everyone along to experience Australia's oldest parliament at the Family Fun Day this October.
Getting There: Public transport is recommended. The nearest train stations are Martin Place and St James, both require a short walk to Parliament House.
Some buses go along Macquarie St but close stops are Wynyard, Elizabeth St and Circular Quay.
If you do drive the Domain car park has the best access with an underground moving footway connecting to Hyde Park. City car parking can be expensive.
