About The Courthouse

The Courthouse was one of the last public buildings designed by New South Wales’ longest-serving Colonial Architect, James Barnet (1862–1890). Overall he was responsible for 12,000 projects costing more than six million pounds. Read more about the Courthouse architect.

A classical Greek Revival-style building, the historic Courthouse was completed in 1891 and was in use until 1988. It was central to law and order in the region during this time. Since then, it passed into private ownership before being purchased by Shoalhaven City Council and leased back to the community, who now manage it through the Berry Courthouse Conservation Committee Inc.

The beautifully landscaped gardens surrounding the Courthouse are a delight for the senses. A series of small open gardens and a larger private Hedged Garden have been planted with flowering shrubs, trees, bulbs and roses that provide a stunning backdrop for photographs.
