The Gordonvale police station is of local historic significance as an early and permanent occupation of the reserve which was established for this use. The station comprises the Courthouse, the police residence (itself the former police station) and two police houses for married men. These are the second generation of buildings on this site. The first were established very early in the settlement of Gordonvale and were replaced by this substantial group of timber buildings, which have now been on the site for approximately 100 years (in particular the residence and courthouse). They are amongst the oldest surviving public buildings in Gordonvale.
