It's the one building in Canberra that arguably most typifies the nation's capital, seat of Australia's federal government.

It's the Australian Parliament House and it lords over the city from its Capital Hill site.

If coming from the city's north, head south on Northbourne Ave and continue on Commonwealth Ave across Lake Burley Griffin and the Australian Parliament House would be impossible to miss.

The Australian Parliament House forecourt features a magnificent piece of Indigenous artwork created from 100,000 mosaic tiles.
