1887 Goulburn Court House

Designed by the colonial Architect James Barnett, the Goulburn Court House was officially opened on 14 October 1887, and has continued in use since then.

In its heritage listing for the Court House, the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage describes it thus: “The Goulburn courthouse and its setting is an expression of a cultural and developmental phase, embodying the confidence of the late Victorian era and is associated with the coming of age of the town, the lobbying for civic improvement and demonstrates an important phase in the town’s evolution and development.” (Significance update 12 August 1998)

(It was in fact at least the third Goulburn court house.  The second was built in 1847 and now has the Argyle Emporium beside it and is diagonally behind the current court house)
