Customs houses were built in all major Australian ports in the nineteenth century. Customs and excise duties were an important source of revenue, levied on goods from overseas and in some cases from other colonies.
Public areas of Customs House are limited but are open to the public. As you absorb the history, style and grandeur of the building, your every sense will be stimulated by a presence of the past. As a visitor for business, education, music, art, entertainment, or as a curious sightseer, you will enjoy the splendour of this magnificent building's origins.
