Looking from the outside, you can see the courthouse was built in a bygone era. It is quite large and imposing but has well preserved. Inside, there’s a lot of history about the courthouse and the town of Berrima which many would find interesting. We...More

We were surprised to find such a lot of history in this little town which was well planned during mid 19th century. Staff was friendly and explained the history after we saw a short self explanatory movie. Sound & Light Show was fantastic, looked so...More

Unfortunately the Courthouse wasn't open the day we visited. I believe that they offer a fairly interesting tour, so may go back some time. I found it to be very sparse, no garden at all and just looked like a big empty old building.

Really enjoyed all the information & the light & sound show display in the mock court. The dress up clothes were fun, but was too dark in there to get photos of dress up though.

A lovely well preserved building . No real displays apart from the introductory video upon entering and the light show in the actual courtroom. The light show concept very good although the plaster models could use good tidy up. Then when light show over the...More

The building itself has been expertly preserved for future generations. The mannequins are a bit spooky but they depict the day and the harshness of life in these parts. The reenactment was historical. We appreciated the experience .

Looking at the place, you wouldn't know it had tours. Even going inside out of curiosity, there was no clear indicator. We had no idea there was any on until long after we had left, so not sure if we missed out or not. There...More
