Visitor access to committee proceedings

Sessions marked with an asterisk* will be broadcast live on Parliament TV and green shaded sessions are open to the public. However, please note that space is very limited due to limitations on room capacity in accordance with health directives and there is no guarantee attendance will be possible.*

*Visitors attending as witnesses invited by a Committee will be permitted. 

Access to the Parliament for members of the public wishing to attend a public hearing or briefing is through reception on the ground level of the Parliamentary Annexe in Alice Street. Please inform us of any special needs you may have prior to attending a public hearing and we will endeavour to accommodate them. Attendees will need to pass through security and must provide government issued photo identification (such as a driver licence) as proof of identification before being allowed entry. There may also be delays in entry due to social distancing requirements.

Please enter the meeting room only if there is a sign indicating that the room is ‘open to the public’. Please wait outside if you do not see such a sign, as the committee might be discussing something in private, or the schedule might have changed at short notice.

COVID vaccination information and restrictions

All invited guests and visitors to the Queensland Parliament precinct will need to provide proof of vaccination, via their Check-in Queensland app with a ‘green tick’. 

Each attendee’s status will be checked by Parliamentary Security as they pass through security screening on arrival to the Parliamentary Annexe. If any guest or visitor is unable to provide this they will need to produce one of the approved documents, as outlined in the Speaker’s directive accessible on the Queensland Parliament COVID 19 Response webpage. 

In summary:

  • No person can enter the parliamentary precinct unless they are fully vaccinated or exempt. This does not apply to young people under the age of 16.
  • All visitors are required to check-in and prove their vaccination status via the ‘Check-in Queensland’ app or other accepted means.
  • Persons exempt from vaccination are required to wear a mask and cannot visit any food or beverage service on the precinct.


Guests and visitors will be required to wear a mask whilst on the precinct. Witnesses will be permitted to remove their mask when addressing a committee during proceedings.
