This is such an amazing place and best experienced with a guide. The architecture and artwork is engaging. Carina is an excellent guide and made our visit the most enjoyable of all our visits to national icons.

The history and function of the High Court are well presented, there is a nice cafe with a great view of the lake hidden at the back. A nice place to sit and relax.
When you enter reception there is a leaflet available that summarises both the court and the building. If possible try and go on a date the court is sitting as it is interesting to watch the operations of the court.
Very interesting to visit on a Sunday. There are law students to give lots of info about the court - historical and architectural. Not many people about on a Sunday so can go right through the court. Very interest, well worth the visit.
See the building and court rooms where nationally important decisions are made. The architecture is impressive as are the black leather chairs in public areas.
