Modernising the courthouse while preserving its past.
Government Architect Walter Liberty Vernon designed Katoomba Courthouse. The foundation stone was laid in 1895 by the Lieutenant Governor, Sir Frederick Darley; construction was completed in 1897.
The Mountaineer newspaper reported it would be a building whose “outward appearance will delight those with architectural tastes, while its inner compartments will be a terror to evildoers.”
Slate Roofing Australia restored the roof building using Welsh Penrhyn slates. Combining with its unique natural beauty, a natural Welsh slate is sustainable with a life expectancy of well over 100 years. Can withstand the most extreme environmental and weather conditions.
