Panorama of the Supreme Courthouse taken from the Court House Gardens in Perth.
These botanical gardens were opened in 1845. Surrounded by mature trees, they remain a relaxing, semi-enclosed space in the heart of the Central Business District. Carols by Candlelight and Opera in the Park are events hosted here in the summer months. Seating, toilets and fresh drinking water are available.
This Court house building was built in 1903 when the older courthouse became too small to handle the growing number of trials heard there. This newer building was heralded as one of the finest of the Gold Rush era and has been extended and sumptuously renovated since in line with growing need.
The original court was founded by the Lieutenant Governor of the new Swan River colony, Captain James Stirling, in 1829. Thus began the judicial system in Western Australia. The original court served as many purposes including church, school, theatre, immigration depot and was very much at the heart of the early community.
