Parliament House in Darwin was officially opened by the Governor-General, the Honourable Bill Hayden AC on 18 August 1994. The building was designed to harmonise with the Top End's tropical climate and Australian materials feature throughout. The brown granite flooring was quarried at Mt Bundy, just south of Darwin.
As well as housing the NT Legislative Chamber, Parliament House is home to the Department of the Legislative Assembly, Ministerial, Opposition and Independent Members offices, Parliamentary Counsel, the Northern Territory Library, Speakers Corner café and a local artists craft shop.


Free guided tours depart from the foyer every Wednesday at 10.30am during the months of February to November. Tour duration is approximately 60 minutes. *Limited spaces available.
