Elliott Urges Families To Take Part In Parliament Open Day

Baulkham Hills State Liberal MP David Elliott urged families looking for something fun,
educational and free to do during the September school holidays to head along to the annual open day at the Parliament of New South Wales.

“The annual open day is a chance for the whole family to see inside the Parliament, exploring areas not usually open to the public and learning a little bit more about what the Parliament does and how you can get involved,” Mr Elliott said.

“It’s a great opportunity for a fun and education day out in the Sydney CBD. Families
can participate in a re-enactment of the Opening of the Parliament, take fun snapshots in the Legislative Chambers, meet today’s Parliamentary Officers and also take a stroll down historic Macquarie Street.

“There is no need to book and all are welcome to come along. There will be a sausage sizzle in the beautiful Speaker’s Garden (with all proceeds going to charity), as well as a place for parents to sit and enjoy a well-earned coffee break.

“The doors will be open on Friday, 26th September for a day of interactive and fun activities including a children’s trail; visits to the Legislative Chambers; tours of historic areas; guessing competitions; arts and crafts; roving historical characters; photo and dress up opportunities; live music, art exhibits; role plays, barbeque and much more. Doors will be open from 10.00 am to 3:00 pm and entry is free.”

The NSW Parliament is located along Macquarie Street, in Sydney’s CBD, close to Martin
Place Train Station and CBD bus stations. Visit www.parliament.nsw.gov.au or phone the Parliament’s Education Team on 02 9230 2047 for more information.
