Visiting Parliament House

The NSW Parliament is located in Macquarie Street and is the oldest Parliament in the country. The NSW Parliament is also the longest-serving, uninterrupted Parliamentary democracy in the world. Parliament sits for around 21 weeks every year and is open to the public. Click here for the 2017 sitting schedule.


Individual Visitors

I’d be happy to arrange a tour if you’re interested in visiting Parliament. With enough notice I can also have you formally welcomed by the Speaker of the House during Question Time.


School Groups

I am always delighted to welcome school groups from the Maitland area to Parliament House. Please contact me in advance so I can schedule a time to meet you. Call my office on 4933 1617 or email
