Why was a new Parliament House opened?
Australia's old Parliament House, which was officially opened on 9 May 1927, was only ever intended to be a temporary residence for Parliament to sit. It was large enough for parliament at the time, but as the nation grew, extra functions and responsibilities of the government meant a much larger venue was required. This is why a new parliament house was required.
