Booking an event at Parliament House (members only)

Functions at Parliament House must be of either a parliamentary or executive government nature, and must be hosted by a current member of Parliament (the event organiser). Functions must not be private or party political in nature and when there are multiple requests for a function in the same area, the Presiding Officers and parliamentary functions will have priority.

Functions on parliamentary sitting days are restricted to prevent interference with the operations of the chambers and the movement of members around the building. All function bookings are subject to approval by the Executive Manager Parliamentary Services. The Presiding Officers may determine specific requirements and restrictions on a case-by-case basis.
