The Parliament House of Victoria has remained incomplete throughout several decades. This piece of history lacks a dome, northern wing superstructure and a south-eastern basement envisaged in the original design. Nevertheless, it is a significant piece of mid-19th century civic architecture and an important establishment for modern political debate and decision-making. It is also a symbol of parliamentary democracy. Building commenced in 1855. Evidence of the Victorian Gold Rush of that era can be seen in its interior. The elaborate use of gold is a direct result of this important piece of Australian history.
