Video Transcript

This beautiful building the Downing Centre Court Complex.

It was built in 1908, and traded as a department store until 1980 when it was taken over by Grace Brothers, who traded here until 1983.

It was made into a court complex in 1985, and in 1991 was named the Downing Centre after the former attorney general administer of justice Rich Downing.

It comprises seven levels of courts.

The district courts are from levels lower ground to level three and the local courts are level four and level five.

The cases range from drink driving, AVOs, and so on, up until district court trials for serious crime.
