Berrima Court House Ghost Hunts
A little bit about the Courthouse
The site for the Court House was chosen by Governor Bourke on a visit in 1834. However, difficulties with the original architect and contractors meant that little was achieved before the appointment of Mortimer Lewis as government architect in 1835.
A foundation stone was laid by Governor Bourke in March 1835, and instructions given for quarrying sandstone at Church Hill (behind Holy Trinity Church of England today).
It took another 3 years for the building to be completed, after further difficulties with contractors, it was apparent that sub-standard workmanship(leaking roofs and water seepage from the foundations)was rapidly affecting the condition of the building, necessitating expensive repairs for the next 20 years.
Nevertheless, Mortimer's imposing building was opened in April 1838 with a salaried Police Magistrate, Clerk of Petty Sessions, and nine police constables.

The site where convicted murderers were told they would hang - and just across the road from their final place of death, the Berrima Courthouse has some tragic history and several different ghosts who go with it...
This night is a night of parapsychological experiments.
Parapsychology is the study of alleged psychic phenomena (extrasensory perception, as in telepathy, precognition, clairvoyance, psychokinesis, a.k.a. telekinesis, and psychometry) and other paranormal claims, for example related to near-death experiences, synchronicity, reincarnation, apparitional experiences, etc.

Episode 1 of Paranormal Haunts at Berrima Court House
Physical attack at Berrima Courthouse...
In January, 2019, we had a police prosecutor join us. This is what happened to him in the male holding cell...
We can't help but wonder if someone in the male holding cell took exception to a 'law man' being locked up in there.
