Prepare to be 'arrested' by this truly magnificent building!
Having recently celebrated her 150th birthday, The Wellington Courthouse is a building with a story.
Once upon a time (in the 1850's) gold shipments were transported from Mt Alexandra through to Adelaide via the river crossing at Wellington. At this stage there was just a police station to service the community. As the population increased, an upgrade of services for Wellington was ordered and the new Police station, Courthouse, stables, store and accommodation were planned. Tales of the era are etched in history with fabulous story boards that form part of the Museum which is on display in a partnership with The National Trust.
Fast forward to 2015 - let's now talk about the present and the future.
The Wellington Courthouse has recently been given the makeover she had been longing for and transformed into a landmark building oozing charm, quality and versatility!
