Default Parliament House - Australia (New pic added)

The building was designed by Mitchell/Giurgola Architects and opened on 9 May 1988 by Elizabeth II, Queen of Australia.

At the time of the construction, it was the most expensive building in the world at more than A$1.1 billion.

I need to see Canberra, still haven't visited yet. That is expensive, (cost of building) I heard that the waste paper baskets cost hundreds and thats just for one! Hope it was just an urban myth. Nice stone work out the front.

G'day Steve

As an ex-Canberra bloke who has retired after working there for 40-odd years ...
In any & every society, political environment etc there are those people who start runours & innuendo - and the size / cost / colour of the waste paper bins are one of many

Anything that 'my' party comes up with is automatically 'good' while the reverse always happens with 'the other mob'. It saddens me to hear & watch great nations like AUS & USA going down-the-gurgler due to refusal to engage in bipartison agreements for things that will be for the betterment of the nation &/or the planet

After all, we can change governments when they stuff up - we can't change the planet

Regards, Phil
