Hobart, Parliament House

See this Virtual Tour in FullScreen High Definition mode.

Tasmania’s Parliament House was designed in 1830 as the Customs House. It was completed in 1840 and soon became home to the Tasmanian Parliament. The House looks over Parliament Square park, and across the road to the water. The House is bordered by Salamanca Place where the famous ‘Salamanca Markets’ run each Saturday.

Being a foreigner (not from Tasmania) I didn’t realise this was the most important government building in Tassie, so was walking around taking pictures on the property before being asked by security to move on. I was told I could shoot from the park as it is public property. This was a fortunate incident, as I wouldn’t have this beautiful virtual tour otherwise.
