25 Treasures from the Parliament House Art Collection

by 10 September 2013

Visit Parliament House to see one of Australia’s best art collections. As a special celebration of the building’s 25th anniversary, 25 artworks by some of Australia’s most notable artists will be on display. Drawn from the Parliament House Art collection, the artworks tell a story of how Australian landscape and identity are intrinsically linked.


Follow the trail through the building to find art by the likes of Arthur Boyd, Michael Nelson Jagamara, Sidney Nolan, Grace Cossington Smith, Rover Thomas, Rosalie Gascoigne and Gloria Tamerre Petyarre. See into the courtyards and view Canberra from the roof to discover how the building itself connects with the landscape and represents Australian identity.


Kids are welcome! Bring them along for the fun of the 25 Treasures Hunt – an art trail designed specially for them.


Free entry


Parliament House is open 9am–5pm every day except Christmas Day.
