Sometimes Strangers'

Parliament House

Sometimes Strangers' is an exquisite three-course lunch served in the stunning Strangers' Dining Room at heritage-listed Parliament House in Brisbane's CBD.  

Every Friday and select Wednesdays, Queensland Parliament opens its doors to the public and invites visitors to dine in style in the grand, historic dining room, usually reserved for Members of Parliament and their guests. Diners will indulge in delicious seasonal fare, featuring the very best of Queensland produce, prepared by Parliamentary chefs. 

The five-star a la carte menu features enticing entrees such as Moreton Bay oysters, Mooloolaba prawns, Toowoomba ox cheek, and Sunshine Coast zucchini flower stuffed with artisan goat's cheese and served with Noosa figs.
