Queenslanders will have one last chance to bid farewell to the building that has been the state’s epicentre of political power since 1971.
The Executive Building has served as the second home for nine State Premiers over the last 45 years.
Now, a day of tours and talks on Saturday 10 December will mark the Executive Building’s farewell before it makes way for the $3 billion Queen’s Wharf Brisbane Development.
December 10 is also Queensland’s Proclamation Day, making it a particularly fitting date to celebrate the end of an era.
Hosted half-hour tours to the Cabinet Room, through the Premier’s office and over Ground Floor and to the Media Room will take place from 10am through to 4pm, with information booths along the way set to document the past 45 years of Queensland’s political history.
The tours will take in rooms where Queensland’s leaders were born and brought down; where ground-breaking legislation was debated and decisions made; and where changes were ushered in that defined Queensland.
If you’ve always wanted to be in the room where it happens, this is your best chance (short of actually running for parliament yourself, of course).
Limited spaces are available on the tours and registration is essential. For more info and to book your spot at the event on Saturday 10 December, visit executivebuildingfarewell.com.au.
