High Court of Australia Reviews
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.
