Parliament House offers some truly unqiue event spaces such as its historic Jubilee Room.

What do King Charles III, the Dalai Lama and silver screen icon Audrey Hepburn have in common? They have all graced the hallowed rooms of NSW Parliament House over the years.

Few venues can match NSW Parliament House for its history, grandeur and previous guest list. From heads of state and world leaders to Hollywood stars and British royalty, NSW Parliament House has welcomed them all. But this historic building is just as welcoming for corporate groups looking for a venue that elevates any event in surprising ways.

NSW Parliament House is also encouraging event planners to book early and secure an amazing deal in 2024, with 50 percent off for events held in January, April and July booked before 15 December 2023.

Nestled between The Domain and Macquarie Street, NSW Parliament House’s location alone signals this is no ordinary venue. Dating back to 1816, the building’s front entrance, which in its original incarnation as Australia’s first hospital, sets the scene for a journey into the unexpected.

NSW Parliament House offers nine event spaces each with their own very unique character. Among the most popular is the Strangers’ Room. Light and airy with panoramic garden views which contrast perfectly with the historic buildings around it. Ideal for conferences, seminars, luncheons, award dinners and stand-up cocktail reception events. It is also adjacent to the Fountain Court area which can be booked in conjunction with the room for pre-dinner reception drinks for up-to 200 people.
