Visitors with Parliamentary business

Queensland Parliament currently remains open to visitors for meetings connected with parliamentary or constituency business. Committee witnesses are not affected by this change.

If you are due to come to a meeting or event and are unsure about whether or not this is still taking place, please contact the organiser for information.

This is a rapidly developing situation and we continue to closely monitor developments and will update our advice for visitors as matters evolve.

If you are planning on coming to Parliament House, there are some simple steps you can take to help:

Clean your hands regularly with soap and water or alcohol-based hand rubs.
Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or bent elbow when coughing or sneezing.
Avoid touching your face, nose and mouth. And avoid shaking hands.
Avoid contact with anyone who is unwell – try to stay 1.5m away from anyone coughing or sneezing.

If you are unwell you stay at home. If you have symptoms of COVID-19, such as a new persistent cough and/or a fever, please do not come to the parliament.  In these circumstances, you should follow medical advice.

Parliamentary business including all debates and committee meetings are streamed live. We encourage you to watch online at Parliament TV:
