Visitors to Court Houses

Last published on 28 Mar 2020 in Media Statements

The Local Court is working hard to keep court users and staff safe during the COVID-19 pandemic by minimising face-to-face contact.

From Monday 30 March, you do not need to attend a courthouse unless instructed by your lawyer, police or the court.

For those who received paperwork before 16 March this year directing them to attend court, please email the Court Services Centre or phone or email your Local Court. Contact details can be found at

The majority of appearances will be conducted via Audio Visual Link technology or adjourned to a later date until further notice.

If you attend the courthouse and do not need to be there you will be asked to leave the premises for your safety.

We apologise for any inconvenience, but your health is our number one priority and we are taking all the steps necessary to keep your wellbeing front and centre during this period.
