Berrima Courthouse - Berrima
The Berrima Courthouse is the centrepiece of the historic village of Berrima, which was established in the 1830s during an era of great exploration, as the expansive state of New South Wales underwent massive change from a penal colony to a rural settlement.
You can take a self-guided tour through this magnificent building, to see the seven square metre quilt that was stitched to commemorate the 175th birthday of Berrima and more than 200 black and white photos of the village, dating back to the 1830s. You will experience a chilling reminder of Australia's early justice and penal system as your tour takes you into the main court room, with over 50 mannequins dressed in period costume depicting the court room of the day. There is a wide screen audiovisual film of the life and times of Berrima.
