Neighborhood: Central Adelaide
Overview

Opened in 1851 as the State's Supreme Court, this dominating sandstone structure stands as one of the most historic public buildings in Adelaide. One of the biggest worries during its construction was the lack of quarry material at that time in South Australia. Expanded and altered several times, the Victoria Square building lost much of its original appearance, but has remained relatively unchanged since the 1930s. Highlights include the original 19th century courtroom and the massive columns guarding the front entrance. Visitors are welcome to wander around the court's public areas and sit in on cases.
