Function and Meeting Facilities

Whether you are planning a cocktail party, a formal dinner or conference, the stunning surroundings at Old Parliament House will impress.

With an abundance of natural light and sweeping views to Parliament House, the Members’ Dining Room is ideal for both elegant dinners and conferences of distinction. Your guests will be charmed by the wood panelled Members’ bar one of the finest Art Deco design examples left in Australia.

Gracious verandahs provide light filled spaces for relaxation and meeting breaks. Your guests can enjoy fresh air and a change of scenery with a lunch on the lawns of the historic Courtyards.

King’s Hall is a grand atmospheric space, ideally suited to cocktail style events. When beginning your evening with pre-dinner drinks in the prestigious King’s Hall, you set the tone for an evening of classic grandeur.

On either side of King’s Hall lie the Senate and House of Representatives Chambers. This can be used as a unique aspect add-on to your cocktail party or hired exclusively for use as a debate space.

For more intimate gatherings the former prime ministerial Private Dining Rooms and Courtyard Room presents a comfortable and stylish atmosphere for secluded lunches and dinners.
