Parliament House, which was officially opened in 1988, is the home of the Parliament of Australia. It is located on a 32-hectare site on Capital Hill in Canberra, the capital city of Australia.
In 2013 the Parliamentary Library published a chronology of events, Australia’s Parliament House —more than 25 years in the making!, in recognition of the building’s 25th anniversary.
This chronology continues the focus on Australia’s Parliament House, highlighting significant milestones associated with the building and the Parliament between January 2014 and December 2015. Appendix 1 presents a list of key legislation passed by the Commonwealth Parliament in 2014 and 2015. This chronology of events has been compiled from published sources and includes images and links to audio-visual and documentary records.
