The Supreme Court of New South Wales is a living institution, and a vital organ in our functioning democracy. It also has a rich history which itself provides a unique lens into the history of the colony and, subsequently, the State, of New South Wales.

We invite you to discover 200 years of the Supreme Court starting at the contemporary Banco Court and ending in the heritage King Street Courts. Learn about famous criminal trials, colonial law, and historic traditions rooted in the Supreme Court.
