Berrima Courthouse


Today visit to the Berrima courthouse is much more a unique theatrical experience rather than a foreboding one. The highlight of the tour is the spectacular Son et Lumiere (sound and light show) titled 'Treachery Treason and Murder' a dramatic and moving audio visual experience masterfully depicting the most infamous trial of the 1840s.

As you walk into the main courtroom you are surrounded on all sides by juror's public gallery, witnesses, and barrister's clerks of the court. As the preamble comes to a conclusion the judge appears out of the darkened courtroom to commence his sentencing of the two murderers.

The Berrima courthouse has become one of the 'must see' attractions for those that visit the southern highlands and historic Berrima. Voted best attraction in the 2014 Rural Press business awards just recently awarded a winning certificate of excellence by Trip Advisor 2015.
