The Old Court House was constructed between 1860 – 1897, marking the establishment of Busselton as an important regional centre and port during the colonial era.

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

Today, the Old Court House provides a fascinating glimpse of life in the township some 160 years ago.As part of Busselton's burgeoning cultural precinct,
which includes the ArtGeo Gallery and the Weld Repertory Theatre, the Court House also functions
as a creative arts hub and heritage site. The precinct provides performance
and exhibition space, artists' studios and workshops, guided tours, cafe and retail
outlet for regional arts and crafts. The Wadandi people are the traditional owners of the land on
which the Court House was constructed.
