Courthouse 1897Feel the history between the walls of the 158-year-old heritage listed Old Courthouse complex - its story is full of colourful characters, humour, hardship and punishment. 

Be guided through one of Busseltons oldest buildings dating from 1860, including the original Courtroom, Bond Store, Police Station Gaol Cells and Horse Stables. Our friendly guides will keep you entertained with stories of escapees, notorious characters, daily prison life, famous court cases and more! 

Imagine yourself being tried in the Courtroom which features the original magistrates bench, cleark's desk, dock, witness stand and public gallery. Get the chills as you walk the dark, cold corridor of gaol cells where prisoners, charged for crimes like petty theft, vagrancy, wife beating or drunk and disorderly conduct were confined.
