Lonely Planet review

One block south of the Mansions, Parliament House occupies a suitably regal position overlooking the City Botanic Gardens. Set against a tropical backdrop, its grand, sand-coloured facade is quite magnificent and arguably Brisbane’s most stunning historical piece of architecture. The structure dates from 1868 and was built in French Renaissance style with a roof clad in Mt Isa copper. Free guided tours are available on demand between 9am and 4pm Monday to Friday, which is the only way you’ll get to peek inside.
