About

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 & light show) titled "Treachery Treason & 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. His final summation and orders will chill you.

 

 

All in all in its latest incarnation the Berrima courthouse still provides those that enter a glimpse into our early 1840s justice system, albeit without the risk of a lengthy sentence to prison or even a more somber outcome the death sentence. The Berrima courthouse has become one of the "must see" attractions for those that visit the southern highlands & historic Berrima. Voted best attraction in the 2014 Rural Press business awards and just recently awarded a winning certificate of excellence by trip advisor for 2015

Open 7 days 10.00-4.00 48771505
