Parliament   Leave a comment

This was a cool visit on one of our trips into Melbourne City.  It wa sa short tour, but free so I can hardly complain.

The parliament building is split into two halves.  One is the Victorian Legislative Council, called the upper house.  The other is the Victorian Legislative Assembly the lower house.  One chamber has plush velvet seating the other plush leather.  The decorative detail of each chamber with gilt work was amazing.

Here’s some more info on the building.
