Here is your chance to experience High Tea at Parliament House in Sydney. Win one of two prizes, each prize includes a Sparkling Rose High Tea for two people valued at $130.

Dine with history at Strangers’ Restaurant – a place where Members of Parliament meet and greet their guests.

Historically, guests to Parliament, which may include visiting dignitaries, consulate representatives or even members of the Royal family were referred to as ’strangers’, thus the restaurant became known as the place ‘where strangers become friends’.

Today, we invite you and your guests to continue this tradition.
