This small but importantly historic Old Courthouse has been wonderfully preserved and restored. Traditional old court room a great example of early Australian legal history. There are also gaol holding cells and a small exercise yard on terrific grounds. Worth a good hour or so, maybe even a picnic in the grounds

Have been several times. The volunteers who man the center are lovely and happy to share their knowledge. They were happy to look up local history and tell a tale or two. Lovely to walk around and a great place to stop and have a picnic.

The courthouse and police station provides insight into the history of Willunga and the Slate museum looks at the main industry in Willunga - Slate quarrying. Popular place for weddings.

The Guide was able to convey a sense of the times when the Courthouse was operational and the reason it was built where it was. If able, take te time to visit.

Beautiful old stone building, now a courthouse museum adjoining the Slate Museum too. Worth a visit, as slate was the prime industry of Willunga in 1840s on, still a quarry opertaional today out of town. National Trust care for this facility.
