Old Parliament House

Old Parliament House (OPH) was the home of the federal Parliament from 1927 to 1988 and was designed by John Smith Murdoch, the first Commonwealth government architect. The building witnessed many significant events in Australia’s parliamentary and political history and is an iconic landmark in our democratic journey. From royal banquets and official state receptions to corporate conferences and galas alike, OPH has been host to it all. Refurbished to reflect its original grandeur, this renowned heritage-listed venue continues to provide a sophisticated and elegant backdrop for events of all styles.
