About Public tours
On the tour, you will learn about the functions, procedures and rich history of the Parliament of Western Australia.
The format of the tour will vary depending on whether Parliament is sitting at the time of the tour.
When Parliament is sitting, you will view Parliament at work from the public gallery of the Legislative Council and the Legislative Assembly chambers.
Non-sitting day tour
When Parliament is not sitting, you will learn how the parliamentary process works from the floor of the Legislative Council and Legislative Assembly chambers.
The maximum number of people on a public tour is 25.
You may choose to return and watch Parliament when the Legislative Council or the Legislative Assembly is sitting. You will be required to complete the tour and re-enter the public gallery of the Legislative Council (north door) or the Legislative Assembly (south door) from Harvest Terrace.
If you have a disability or access constraint that limits your capacity to use stairs and you want to return to the public gallery of either house to watch proceedings, please advise reception services at the commencement of your tour.
You can also elect to watch Parliament through the Watch and Listen page of this website whenever Parliament is sitting.
