  • As we arrived at 3.40 & this attraction closes at 4pm we were not allowed to enter as the attendants told us we would not have enough time to see the displays. We felt this decision should have been o...  read more »
  • Stopped by here on the way back home from Sydney with 3 others. The old gentleman that works there was rude and we believe to be racist because we were Asians. He did not acknowledge or greet us whilst we were having a look around but was friendly and helpful with others that walked through the doors. He did this right in front of us. I do not recommend this place at all if you are not of western appearance. I would not have given a star if I didn't have to. Very dissapointed with this place!!
  • I'm really glad that we stopped here on the way to Sydney. It was a lovely looking old courthouse, but they did a great job of bringing the place back to life. I highly recommend a visit.
  • If you're planning on visiting Berrima, this is the place to go. An interesting, informative, family friendly experience for anyone. The history of the building and the town are intruiging and the information is presented clearly. The attractions are very fun and humourous and the service was very friendly. A must see.
  • With friends arriving from Queensland, a retired barrister and partner, we paid a small entry fee (seniors receive a discount) and spent over an hour absorbing all the information relating to the Court House, the Gaol and the Wingecarribee Shire.There is also a list of all aboard the First Fleet according to the ship in which they arrived in Australia. In the original Judges Chamber, with his honour and clerk of the court present, we could compare activities in the 1830's in Berrima, Australia and the whole world. Along to the Grand Jury room and a display of historical photos of the village, including German internees during WW! and a large magnificent patchwork quilt crafted by the women of the village presented to the village to celebrate the 175th anniversary.On through the male cell, we entered the Court Room proper and were entertained by a Sound and Light show with the sitting judge describing the function of the people within the room and the outcome of the trial of two people from the 1840's who committed murder and found guilty.Finally we returned to the Petty Jury Bookshop where our tour started and had the opportunity to purchase books on Australiana, souvenirs,postcards,sweets and a plentiful supply of Australian made soaps made from natural ingredients.Our friends left their appreciative thoughts in the visitors book in the court room. Congratulations to the many people involved.
  • Lovely place to visit on the way between Sydney and Canberra. Very informative. Gives a window in to the past. Building is very grand and people very friendly.
