The Old Parliament Building was never an architectural wonder, but its opening as the House of Assembly in 1964 was a significant milestone on PNG's road to independence. Sadly, the shell it has become symbolises the country's steady decline in recent years; it is occupied by squatters and buai -sellers. Despite its majestic hilltop position overlooking Town and the port, there's nothing that indicates its former significance.
