The Supreme Court is the highest court in the state, hearing among the most serious criminal and civil cases, as well as appeals from some Victorian courts and tribunals. Enjoy a tour of the Supreme Court. View the magnificent library, walk the corridors, explore the history and perhaps see inside a courtroom. The Supreme Court building took 10 years to build and was completed in 1884. The heritage listed courthouse is a fine example of the classical Renaissance Revival style on a grand and imposing scale. The beautifully restored courtrooms feature elaborately moulded plaster and marvellously fitted joinery, and much of the original furniture and fixtures throughout the building remain today. *Please note photography is not allowed in the Court.
