The Courthouse Museum houses an extensive collection and is the base of The Bulahdelah and Districts Historical Society.

The Museum is made up of the main court building as well as the old kitchen/ laundry (being the original magistrate’s residence) as well as the cells and holding courtyard area. The police also used the complex as staff residence up until just after the courthouse functions ceased in 1973. The Society boasts a fine garden surrounding the Courthouse complex.

The Society has a fine collection of historical photos most of which have been digitised covering the local timber industry, alunite mining and village infrastructure like bridges, roads and buildings etc. It also has special displays from time to time –well worth a look!
