Tours at 11:30am and 2:30pm daily from 21 December 2019 to 27 January 2020 (except Christmas Day).
Dogs and cats, birds and bees, kangaroos and emus, elephants and mice … from opening day to the present day Old Parliament House has seen all of these creatures and more.
Join us as we follow their trail around the building to learn how these animals bolstered and challenged, inspired and amused workers and visitors alike.
We’ll rumble through King’s Hall, roost in the House of Representatives Chamber, bound down to the Prime Minister’s Office and fly through the House of Representatives Courtyard.
Animal House also includes a rare opportunity to scurry behind the scenes and into the heritage kitchen!
