'Old Parliament House'

By Bree Henkel & Sophie Price

The final cost to build the Old Parliament House was more than 600,000 pounds!

Parliament House was open from 1927-1988. That is more than 60 years!

Parliament House was opened on May the 9th,1927. Many people who wanted to see this historic event had to camp out the night before in freezing cold tents, outside Parliament House itself.

Old Parliament House is now a Tourist Attraction and is open 9am-5pm daily, in Canberra. Students who visit Old Parliament House have the opportunity to take on a role in a democracy party as one activity. They can also take a guided tour of the house and find out the origin of Old Parliament House.

Canberra Symbols

The colours of blue, gold and white were chosen for good reasons. Blue and white are the livery colours of the City (shown by the wreath above the shield on the Canberra City Coat of Arms), while blue and gold are the traditional sporting colours of the ACT and were taken from the national blue and gold appearing on the wreath of the Australian Coat of Arms. The choice of colours maintains existing traditions, reflects a link with national history and preserves heraldic tradition and practice.

The Royal Bluebell was announced as the floral emblem of the Australian Capital Territory on 26 May 1982 by the Hon. Michael Hodgman, the Minister for the Capital Territory.

The creation of the of Arms of the City of Canberra Coat originated from a request by the Commonwealth Department of Defence to the Commonwealth Department of Home Affairs and Territories in July 1927. The request was made so that the Coat of Arms could be used on the newly commissioned ship, HMAS Canberra. In August 1927 the Federal Capital Commission (FCC) announced a competition to design a Coat of Arms for the FCC and for the City of Canberra.

The Gang-gang Cockatoo (Callocephalon fimbriatum) was adopted as the faunal emblem for the ACT on 27 February 1997. Canberra is the only city in Australia where these distinctive ash-grey cockatoos live.
