As the seat of Queensland’s government since 1868, Parliament House is unique as the first and only purpose-built parliamentary building in Queensland. At the time of construction it was the largest and most imposing building in the state, indicating the sense of optimism felt by the Queensland Government of the time.
The original three-storey wing of Parliament House, facing George Street, was constructed in 1865–68 to the design of the Colonial Architect, Charles Tiffin. The building was in the Renaissance Revival style…
Along with the two double height Legislative Chambers on the first floor, the wing included libraries on the first and second floors of the central pavilion; a grand staircase at the back of the central pavilion, with stained glass windows; and concealed spiral staircases at the rear of the wing, leading from the ground floor to the reporters’ gallery of each Legislative Chamber.
The place is a significant landmark in the city of Brisbane, and it is also of considerable aesthetic significance for its high degree of design and craftsmanship, including decorative glass, ornamental cast iron, marble chimney pieces and cedar and yellowwood joinery.
