Dandiir is taken from the phrase ‘Tago Dandiir’ – Tago meaning altogether and Dandiir being the action of meeting or coming together.

This room is also commonly used for Parliamentary Committee hearings and briefings, as well as private meetings, conferences and seminars.

Outside the Dandiir room is a collection of culturally significant artworks and artefacts, known as the Reconciliation Gallery. By inviting elders from the indigenous community in Brisbane to assist in the naming of the Dandiir and Undumbi Rooms, Speaker Hollis intended these spaces to be an extension of reconciliation within Queensland Parliament.
