Houses of Parliament

No mistake in the title - there are two Parliament Houses in this photo.

The big flagpole at the top marks the current Parliament House. The lower white building in front of that is Old Parliament House (now home to the Museum of Australian Democracy). And in front of them both is the Aboriginal Tent Embassy, which will mark its 40th anniversary next year. Lots of information about each of them at the links.

Thats some flagpole! Not heard of the tent embassy before, but I can understand where they are coming from.
