OUR Location

Located in the centre of culture and power within The National Triangle, The Lawns of The Lobby brings the energy.

For 50 years, The Lobby restaurant served as a backdrop for major moments in Australian political history. Located at the heart of the National Triangle, it was a meeting ground for ministers, staffers, and journalists...and sometimes the scene of scandals. Now we’re bringing back that energy—and more—for everyone to enjoy.

Find us at King George Terrace, Parkes ACT.

Opposite Old Parliament House, and next to the National Rose Gardens.
