ABOUT Parliament House Queensland
Top Event Spaces

Parliament House is a venue from another era; built in 1865, this heritage listed site is one of Queensland's best. Functions here inspire, educate and showcase the best of Queensland.


The Cellar is a warm and intimate private function room designed to offer an exclusive dining experience. Traditionally used to house boutique wines, the cellar was recently renovated, making it ideal for small meetings, private lunches or dinners, or intimate networking receptions.


The Lucinda Bar is steeped in history and character, making it a fantastic location for networking events, private lunches or intimate cocktail receptions. Named after the Queensland Government's paddle-steamer, the Lucinda, the bar was built using timber from the original ship.


Boasting a permanent stage, lofty ceilings, wood panelling and an array of historical artworks, the Premiers’ Hall is an impressive space. Perfect for lectures, product launches, medium-sized cocktail receptions, and corporate meetings.


This expansive space which has the versatility to accommodate a variety of functions. The space is suitable for 200 guests standing, 160 in theatre style or 96 seated at tables. It can also be combined with the Premiers’ Hall.


With sprawling views of Parliament House, the Green Deck offers a unique outlook taking in the Speaker’s Green, gardens and the façade of Parliament House. Suitable for cocktail functions, receptions or informal barbeques, this venue has a maximum capacity of 280.


With stunning views of Brisbane River, the River Deck is venue like to no other. Perfect for cocktail functions, receptions or informal barbeques, this venue has a maximum capacity of 320.

Speaker’s Dining Room

The Speaker's Dining Room is the ideal location for a unique boardroom lunch or meeting. The room offers a light filled space with views of Speaker’s Green and Parliament House. Up to 22 seated guests can be accommodated.

Undumbi Room

The Undumbi Room was temporarily used as the chamber whilst renovations occurred in Parliament House. Following this, the Undumbi Room now boasts a fantastic range of features including a large projector screen, permanent stage, smart lectern, microphone and audio system. Located in the Parliamentary Annexe this space is suitable for 250 standing guests, 230 in theatre style or 150 seated at tables.


Strangers’ Dining Room is so called because the term “stranger” is the traditional way of referring to someone physically present in the Palace of Westminster who is neither a member of parliament nor a parliamentary official. In 2004, a motion was approved implementing the recommendation of the Modernisation Committee that the term stranger no longer be used and be replaced with either “member of the public” or “the public”. Strangers’ Dining Room features intricate parquetry floors and stunning period features. Furnished with early Australian cedar yoke back chairs which were probably used in the early refreshment room. It is possible that some of these chairs were used in the original legislative building in the old convict barracks in Queen Street. This space can seat 80 guests or accommodate 100 standing.
