This is a nice place to visit and learn about the history of the Norther Territory. The front lawn has a great view of the ocean. There is a little coffee shop in the building. Worth a visit.

Nice building open to public. Has a library, cafe and a little gift shop on top of the obvious chamber of local assembly. The members can be viewed from a public gallery if they are working, which is not very often here..

Just for interest, check out the building. It is very nice and has a small bit of history. There is a nice cafe inside. I just happened to stumble on Bring Your Dog to Work Day on the Terrace. It was cute!
