Overview

Fair, accessible and efficient courts contribute to public confidence in the justice system. A distinctive new court building will take shape in the coming years on the Bendigo skyline

The new Bendigo Law Court Development will service the Magistrates Court of Victoria, Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal as well as the County Court of Victoria, Federal Circuit Court and Supreme Court of Victoria on a circuit basis.

This innovative future court will be the first in Victoria to feature a full suite of specialist courts at one location, including a Koori Court, and courts for family violence, drug matters, mental health assessment and referral.

In another Victorian-first, the Children’s Court will provide a specialist response at Bendigo, and across the Loddon Mallee on a circuit basis.
