  • Went there in a Sunday afternoon. We had a free tour and there is no admission charge. I found it boring and the building ugly, unfortunately.
  • Imposing building, worth taking a tour - only takes an hour or so. Quite easy to access, with a number of other significant buildings within very short walking distance.
  • i can not honestly believe that Australia will charge 5 men with terrorism for boarding a boat heading for Syria while the whole world knows and it is a proven fact without any doubt what so ever that America is funding and supplying isis!!!! when will Australia indite America for war crimes
  • It's a very interesting an historic building. Great for some photos while visiting the galleries.
  • Free entry. Highest court in Australia, good to know where the power are battled over right here.
