The Bathurst Courthouse is one of the most photographed buildings in Bathurst but
what is the history of the courthouses and gaols since white settlement? Meet at the
Bathurst District Historical Museum to hear some of the stories of those who designed
the buildings and how justice was meted out. You will then be taken on a guided tour
of the Courthouse before returning to the Museum for a light afternoon tea and a
wander through the Museum.
