How many chandeliers are there in Parliament House?
There are 42 chandeliers in Parliament House, with the main chandelier located in the ground floor foyer. This larger chandelier was acquired and installed in Parliament House on completion of the eastern extension in 1964. It came from ‘Mount House’ in West Perth, the former home of William Knight, the fourth Auditor General of Western Australia. Made from Austrian crystal, William Knight brought the chandelier to Western Australia from London in 1851. Mount House was demolished when the Mitchell Freeway was constructed. All chandeliers are cleaned annually.
