The High Court - National Gallery Precinct is outstanding as a group of national buildings in a landscape setting with a clear Australian identity. As envisioned in Walter Burley Griffin's plan for Canberra, it provides a grand panorama of public buildings reflected on the waters of the lake.
The High Court has critical importance to all Australians as the focus and pinnacle of the justice system in Australia. The National Gallery is also important as the home of the national art collection and a major venue for art exhibitions. Both buildings are open to the public and are major tourist attractions in Canberra.
The High Court - National Gallery Precinct was included in the National Heritage List on 23 November 2007.
