The Courthouse

The earliest buildings in the Courthouse judicial complex date from 1860-61. They include the original courtroom and police station, nine primitive gaol cells, horse stables and a bond store once linked to the jetty by tramline so that precious goods could be dispatched from ship to store on horse-drawn wagons.

The Bond Store is now a retail outlet for South West arts and crafts where visitors can purchase fine woodcraft, jewellery, ceramics, glass, paintings, photography, textiles and other hand-made objects produced in the region.
