Courts Open Day 2018

For a day, Victorian courts open their doors to let you see behind the scenes. It's a great day out for the family, offering plenty of children's activities. Join us on Saturday 19 May for Courts Open Day.

Fun family activities in the County Court forecourt include:

11:00 am - 1:00 pm Kids can enjoy face painting by Laurie The Face Painter.

11:30 am - 2:30 pm The Great Gizmo will be entertaining the crowds with a combination of uni cycling, juggling, live music, comedy, and most importantly, fun!
