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.

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

The tour begins with an interesting, historical video before moving through various rooms of the courthouse, where a guide points out some interesting things and answers questions. You’re then left to explore the rooms And exhibits in your own time. It ends with a sound...More

OK the courthouse is 180 years old but that doesn't mean the tour needs to be old and outdated. C'mon Berrima lift your game and bring the attraction into the 21st Century.
