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.

Also: High Tea guests have traditionally been offered a tour of Parliament House during their visit. However, from 17 November 2017 until February 2018, areas of Parliament House will undergo capital works and be excluded from all public tours.
These areas include the Legislative Assembly Chamber, the Legislative Council Chamber and the Members’ Reading Room.

An alternate public tour route will be implemented during this period.
