No. The Parliament building is temporarily closed to the public until further notice. The Parliament is planning to reopen the Parliament to the public once measures to enhance the safety of Members, staff and visitors during the COVID-19 pandemic have been implemented. However, the proceedings of either House can be viewed live on our webcasts. Public tours have also been suspended until further notice. You can also access a virtual tour of the Parliament here.
An alternative means of engaging with the proceedings in Parliament is to also look at the written transcripts produced by our Hansard team, also available on our website
While the Parliament remains closed to the public, including visits from school groups, the Education team are up and running with their videoconferencing program for primary schools.
