Looking for something fun, educational and free to do during the September school holidays? Then why not come along to the annual open day at the Parliament of New South Wales? It’s 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.
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.
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 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.
