The former High Court of Australia played an important role in Australia's legal system for more than 50 years, as the place where many landmark legal decisions were made that have defined the nature of Australian democracy and the rights and responsibilities of all Australians.
The former High Court of Australia building was the scene of many of the debates and decisions that shaped federalism, democracy and national unity by safeguarding our founding document, the Australian Constitution.
Still a working office space, the former High Court is not open to the public.
The former High Court of Australia was included in the National Heritage List on 11 July 2007.
