Downing Centre Local Court is a major heritage-listed former department store and now courthouse complex in the Sydney central business district. It features state government courts, including the Local Court, the District Court, and a law library known as the Downing Centre Library. The Downing Centre forms part of the NSW Department of Communities and Justice.
Most matters will start at the Local Court. The Local Court primarily hears summary offences, which are less serious offences. Examples of such offences include disorderly behaviour and driving under the influence of alcohol or a drug. The Local Court will sometimes hear more serious offences, such as low-level assault, but this is rare. Most serious offences are heard at the District Court and higher Courts.
Other matters that are heard in Local Courts such as Downing Centre Local Court include:
The Local Court deals with civil money and property matters that concern values up to $100,000. If the dispute is about a sum higher than this amount, the matter will go to the District Court or higher Courts.
The Local Court also hears family law matters such as property settlements and residence orders.
Court Lists tell you the date, time and location of court matters up to three weeks in the future, and one week in the past.
The NSW interactive court list allows you to search for a particular case by name, case number, location, date, jurisdiction, title of presiding officer and type of listing (for example, directions, hearing, judgment and so on).
You can use the interactive list to search for the listing of your matter at Downing Centre Local Court.

It is my pleasure to write a review for NGM. My experience with them exceeded my expectations. At all times they were knowledgeable, credible, professional, empathic and organised. It was unfortunate to be in a position to require a solicitor, but I am very pleased they were on my team. Secured an excellent outcome.
I couldn’t be more impressed with Nyman Gibson Miralis Defence Lawyers. We got an amazing result, better than we could have ever hoped for! Not only were they incredibly experienced, but the quality of their care to my family was beautiful.
I was recently wrongfully accused of a crime I did not commit, and thanks to Nyman Gibson Miralis’s team, with their highly professional, experienced, caring and flexible team, I am now able to freely move again, live my life integrally and with my head high.
Nyman Gibson Miralis is one of the best law firms I have used for my legal matters to date. I will recommend NGM to everyone who needs legal representation. The staff was fantastic and very supportive.
