The first courthouse was completed in 1867 but there were endless problems associated with the building like noise, stuffiness and drafts that in the by the 1890?s they decided to give up the building and build a new one at a different location, away from the noise of the ports.

The new Victorian colonial building was constructed in 1897 and housed the Police along with courts), Treasury, Lands and Mines as well as Shipping and Customs. In 1988 the building was empty of its former residents except for the Crown Law Department. The building was then remodelled for the sole purpose of being a courthouse for which it still is today.
