High Tea

Enjoy High Tea at Queensland Parliament House

High Tea at Parliament House 

The Queensland Parliament is proud to offer High Tea in the Strangers' Dining Room.
High Teas are held each month (see the dates below) from 10.30am to midday.

Download the video segment of Channel Seven’s Great South East television program to watch when they visited High Tea in late 2013 (115mb MP4).
