Our Parliament House is shaped like a boomerang

Part of Walter Burley Griffin’s vision for Canberra in 1912 was New Parliament House. Shaped like a boomerang, this marvel of modern architecture is nestled on Capital Hill. Highlights of the building include the two huge circular walls composed of granite, which mirror the curves of the hill; the towering 81m flagpole; and in the foyer, 48 columns of illuminated greenish-grey marble create the impression of a eucalyptus forest. After visiting Parliament House take the 3.5km Parliament House Walk to the city centre or fly over Parliament House in a hot air balloon.
