Parliament of New South Wales

6 Macquarie St, Sydney NSW 2000, Australia

Introduction of Parliament of New South Wales

Parliament of New South Wales is located in the heart of Sydney, New South Wales, on (Macquarie Street), Street, Australia's first parliament.

The New South Wales Parliament is the true supreme authority of the new state. It is not only the legislature of the new state, but also the governor and members of the government themselves elected from among the members of the majority party in parliament. As New South Wales was the first British colony in Australia, and the first to form the Legislative Council (1824) and the upper and lower houses of Parliament (1856), it had a direct experience of belonging to the British Government; So the head of state of New South Wales is the King of England. Even after the establishment of the Commonwealth, the British King was a common monarch of Australia and New South Wales, and was exercised by the Governor of the State only when the British King was not in the New State. Therefore, in the House of Lords of the New South Wales Assembly, there was a royal throne made of red toon wood in 1856 for use by the British monarch in the presence of the British monarch, usually by the Governor of New South Wales.

Parliament of New South Wales is located in the oldest existing public building in Sydney. This two-story Georgian-style facade and new Gothic wing on both sides was originally the office building of the chief surgeon at Sydney Hospital, built in 1816. In 1829, the Legislative Council began to meet in the room at the north end of the surgeon's building. Then gradually eroded the rooms in the building; In 1843 and 1856, the wing was built on the north and south sides of the main building; in 1974, the government began a large-scale reconstruction plan. In 1980, a new 12-story wing was connected to the ancient building for use by the governor and government staff.

Even the New South Wales Parliament, the highest authority in the new state, remains open to the public and hosts visitors; the only thing that makes other attractions different is that access needs to go through strict security checks.
