Old Court House

Heritage and Culture

Overview

The Wardandi people are the traditional owners of the land on which the Courthouse is situated. Its construction between 1860-1897 marks the establishment of Busselton as an important regional centre and port during the colonial era.

During this era the Courthouse operated as a judiciary, government administration centre and land agency, servicing the growing settlement's need for law and order, customs and telecommunications.

Today, as part of Busselton's burgeoning cultural precinct which includes ArtGeo Gallery and the Weld Repertory Theatre, the Courthouse now functions as a creative arts hub and heritage site, providing a performance and exhibition space, artists' studios and workshops, guided tours and a retail outlet for regional arts and crafts.
