The Goulburn Court House and Residence circa 1887, is listed on the New South Wales State Heritage Register. It is an impressive and monumental building designed by Colonial Architect James Barnet in the Italiante style. It is symmetrically planned about a central copper dome set on an octagonal base flanked on either side by wing buildings with arched colonnades on the ground floor and setback arched window openings on the first floor.
The main entrance has an arched porch with pedimented roof flanked either side by long arched colonnades with balustrading along the parapets. These colonnades are terminated by pediments bearing the New South Wales Coat of Arms. Construction is of distinct rust-red colour polychrome brick with decorative sandstone facing relief work.
The two court rooms are each approximately 15m x 9m wide with public galleries reached by stone stairways on either side of the curved pendentives supporting the dome. The building’s walls, floors and ceilings are richly decorated with plaster and cedar joinery, all of which is reported to be in very good condition, internal access is very limited.
The main elevation is approached via a formal garden of mature exotic trees, lawns and shrubs enclosed by a tall iron picket fence, which contains a fine set of gates and stone gate piers.
