“Beautiful building, one of many nicely preserved in Adelaide”
Reviewed 10 July 2013

Beautiful building, one of many nicely preserved in Adelaide. There is a nice walk from the Convention Center, up to King William Street, the to Vicotria Square, back, turn right then cross over by the University of Adelaide law school and back to the convention center. Many many nicely preserved buildings, this is one of many

“Stylish Decor - photos online - Google it!”
Reviewed 23 June 2013

The free tour only lasted 30 minutes so I will be back. Luxurious specially woven carpets bearing state emblems, comfortable leather chairs and benches throughout the building. Informative tour guide. Old library books emitting evocative scents in the huge libraries that an eReader just doesn't give you. Historical building worthy of your time. Granite from Victor Harbor, marble from Kapunda. The entry leads into a lovely space with a domed ceiling. Lots of security getting in, so try not to have too many metallic things in your pockets :)

“Good to visit and its Free!”
Reviewed 9 May 2013

One of the best historic buildings to visit on North Tce. Tours avasilable at 10.00 am and 2.00 pm on non-sitting days. If Parliament is sitting get there at 21.00 pm to see the House of Assembly Question Time. Sometime it is quite interesting and noisey.

“AnAdelaide institution”
Reviewed 21 April 2013

A part of the North Terrace stretch of beautiful and classic style buildings, worth a walk past them all to take in the architecture of the era, and significance of these treasured old buildings.
This photo however is not it! It is the Town Hall in King William Street.

“Obsrvations”
Reviewed 1 February 2013

A wonderful architectural structure too good for all the nonsens that reverberates around it's walls during Parliament sittings. Buidlings like this deserve more recognition.
