2021 Parliamentary Sitting Calendars
Each parliament has its own sitting calendar which outlines the dates that the parliament will meet throughout the year. These sitting dates are different in each jurisdiction and across the lower and upper houses.
Sitting calendars also include key dates in the parliamentary year such as elections, budgets and estimates hearings. A new sitting calendar is released after an election or before the beginning of the year.
