It's a very important building and it is imposing, rising up above the area. It's very large a little bombastic, not necessarily graceful. Water feature outside.
Must visit for the experience of sitting in the Highest Court in Australia where the biggest verdicts are made.
“First time visit”
Very interesting, the court rooms were huge. Interesting info scattered around relating to former judges. The guide in Court Room 1 was very helpful and told us a lot about it.
