The second interesting thing is that it is actually in the center of a huge roundabout. The third attraction is that a short walk away is the historic building of the original parliament

Parliament

The first thing that will surprise you when you approach the parliament is its immersion in the surrounding terrain. The dominant feature is the huge Australian flag

Beautiful view from the roof of the parliament

From the roof is a beautiful view of the surrounding hilly landscape. Directly in front of us is the old parliament building and in the distance the Australian War Memorial under the Mount Ainslie lookout hill.
