"What is Parliament?"

Thanks for the question Max the Cat! The Australian Parliament is the place where laws are made for all of Australia, and where elected representatives put forward the concerns and interests of the Australian people. The federal Parliament is made up of the Queen (represented by the Governor-General), the House of Representatives and the Senate.
