Built in 1909 the Bangalow Courthouse was constructed alongside the Police lock-up, which had been erected in 1905.
At the time Bangalow was described as a ‘budding township’, servicing a developing dairying industry, see location map below. As with any growing community, it needed a police presence with adequate facilities. A number of the original Federation era shop facades lining the main street have been preserved rendering the townscape with special charm.
Before the Bangalow police station and lock-up was built Bangalow police were required to transport people in custody to the Byron Bay Police Station. The Northern Star, November 1904.
