The town of Berrima was an ideal location, and an important stopping off point on the journey from Sydney to Victoria. People who travelled would stop at Berrima to enjoy a meal and stay the night.
The courthouse was the first building to have a trial by jury in Australia. There are twelve documented cases of the death penalty in the courthouse with many of them taking place at Berrima Gaol, only a stones throw away from the courthouse.
In the few years that APPI have been running the tours/investigations at this courthouse we have experienced footsteps, voices, doppelgangers, possessions and full bodied apparitions!
Latches lifting on interior doors have been heard along with doors creaking open in the middle of the night.
Piano music along with footsteps and cold breezes in certain areas of the building are said to have been heard and felt. There are reports of some Poltergeist type activity with objects being moved and found in different areas within the property also.
