High Tea

High Tea events cancelled until 30 June 2020.

Queensland Parliament invites you to enjoy an indulgent High Tea in our iconic Strangers' Dining Room. Every High Tea is a special occasion featuring:

  • Live classical music
  • The option to upgrade to a sparkling High Tea and;
  • An optional tour of the exclusive O'Donovan Library
