With the election over, people are now analysing the very close result. The government’s very small majority is not unusual in Australian history, and plenty of elections have come down to the wire and shown a very close result. Our researcher Campbell has examined six of them.
A national icon, a place of great beauty, magnificent design and historical significance, Old Parliament House is home to the Museum of Australian Democracy.
Enjoy a range of innovative exhibitions, tours and public programs that challenge and inspire. There are also special activities and spaces for children to explore. Finish your visit in one of our two beautiful cafés.
As one of Australia’s most cherished and important buildings, Old Parliament House is a great venue for conferences, events, formals, dinners and weddings.
Celebrating the spirit of Australian democracy and the power of your voice within it!
