When Captain James Stirling and his settlers arrived in Western Australia in June 1829, one of their first activities in establishing the colony was to set up a judicial system. They did this under the authority of the British Secretary of State for the Colonies. The first court hearing in Western Australia was held in July 1830. Eight justices of the peace were engaged to address all justice matters from administration to handing down punishments for crime. Australia had not developed its own laws at this time, so British law was used.

In 1837, eight years after the European settlers first arrived, Western Australia's first Supreme Court was opened in what is now known as Stirling Gardens. It cost £698 to build and is the highest court under Western Australian law, along with the district and local courts.

The best advice you'll get from us is to try to see some of the country while you're there. It's big (huge!) and each different region is exciting and very, very beautiful.

A little about Perth: Perth was built on the banks of the magnificent Swan River over 150 years ago and is now a city rich in culture and filled with theatres, art galleries and museums. The city is modern and vibrant - a fun, friendly and 'laid back' place, with clear skies and a sunny climate. Western Australia is locally known as the 'state of excitement!'

Some of its more famous attractions include Kings Park, Scarborough Beach, Fremantle and the Swan River. Fremantle (or as the local’s call it, ‘Freo’) is the city’s port and is rich in history. At weekends you will find markets, entertainment and plenty of alfresco style cafes to laze in.

Perth has restaurants to suit all tastes - the most popular cuisine is of course the great Australian BBQ. Barbeque facilities are abundant in local parks - take your own food and cook up a feast, Australian style! For meals in local restaurants, a trip to Perth's inner city center is well worth the effort - it bustles with activity and offers a range of choices of restaurants.

  • Fremantle - Spend a few days in Fremantle is an absolute must. Just a 30 minute drive from Perth's city center. Freo, as it's known by locals is a vibrant port city you can't miss.

  • Rottnest Island - Just offshore from Perth, Rottnest Island is where the locals go to swim at white-sand beaches, snorkel in turquoise water over shipwrecks, or kick back and go fishing. Rotto, as it's called locally, is a car-free zone, which adds to its relaxed feel.

  • Margaret River - No trip to Western Australia is complete without a pit stop at Margaret River. Originally a chilled out surfie town, Margaret River has evolved into the ultimate smorgasbord of good food, fine wine and spectacular scenery - just a three-and-a-half hour drive south of Perth.

  • Albany - Prepare to be blown away by Albany's dramatic convict history, set against a backdrop of rugged granite coastline, green seas and a wild beauty that tugs at the heartstrings. Step back in time and explore convict jails, old taverns, whaling ships and settlers' cottages and grand National Trust homes in beautifully landscaped grounds.

  • Denmark - You'll fall in love with Denmark - where towering tall trees meet the ocean. The town has a relaxed village atmosphere, romantic timber milling history and incredible coastal scenery.

  • Ningaloo Reef - Take a dive with hundreds of tropical fish, amazing coral formations and the world's biggest fish, the whale shark, at unspoilt Ningaloo Reef.

  • Monkey Mia - Monkey Mia is one of Western Australia's most famous dolphin watching destinations.

  • Shark Bay - The Shark Bay World Heritage Area was Western Australia's first World Heritage Listed site and one of only 16 Australia wide that fit all four selection criteria. Shark Bay's wilderness and natural wonders make for a unique vacation.

  • The Pinnacles - The extraordinary ancient rock formations that make up the Pinnacles are located about a three-hour drive north of Perth near the coastal town of Cervantes.

  • Kalgoorlie - Get ready for a heady trip to Kalgoorlie, Western Australia's largest goldfields town famed for its fascinating gold rush history, fabulous old buildings and old gold miners' ghost towns.

  • Esperance - For squeaky-white beaches, getting off the beaten track and bunking down under the stars, head south to Esperance. This place is so relaxed even the kangaroos sun bake on the beach.

  • Bunbury - The cosmopolitan city of Bunbury, just two hours drive south of Perth, is located on a spectacular peninsular surrounded by blue waters of the Indian Ocean, Koombana Bay and the Leschenault Inlet.
