  • Interesting place to visit especially when the court is sitting. Visitors are able to be seated in the court to observe proceedings. Security checks at entrance.  more »
  • A truly fascinating building full of art work, comfortable couches and interesting information. The guide in Court 1 on Easter Sunday was a wealth of information - thankyou!  more »

  • Fantastic place to visit. So much national history has occurred here. Staff are very friendly and helpful explaining the finer details. Just gutted they charge for parking. It's a national disgrace for domestic visitors.
  • Came all the way from Qld, only here on a Saturday. Turns out that's the only day the place isn't open. Way to make the place accessible to visitors, you clowns.
