Babinda Court House - Police Station and Residence
Places of Significance - Cairns Regional Council

The complex of former court house and police residences is of local significance as a group of buildings from the early history of Babinda. The evolution of the site portrays the developing need for not only a police presence but a place of carrying out the judicial function of the state. Although not now used as a Court, the building is identifiable due to its scale relationship to the small town of Babinda. All buildings for the police and courts were developed by the Public Works Department and as a group of timber buildings, they are near intact apart from the Police Office subsequently moved to the opposite side of the road.
