11 High Court of Australia in Canberra, Australia

Australia’s Constitution was passed on January 1, 1901. More than 2.5 years would pass before the High Court of Australia was formed. This is the equivalent of the country’s supreme court. The first session was held in Melbourne. During the initial years, the justices moved throughout Australia based on an annual schedule. In 1968, the decision was made to house the High Court in Canberra. Since 1980, the Chief Justice and six other Justices have been housed in the High Court Building on Lake Burley Griffin. The Cascade Waterfall was created by Robert Raymond Woodward. Its design represents a stream running down Australian volcanic rocks.
