High Court of Australia

Local nameHigh Court of Australia
LocationCanberra, Australia

The High Court of Australia is the highest court in the Australian court hierarchy and the final court of appeal. It has both original and appellate jurisdiction, the power of judicial review over laws passed by the Parliament of Australia and the parliaments of the states and territories, and the ability to interpret the Constitution of Australia and thereby shape the development of federalism in Australia.

The High Court is mandated by section 71 of the Australian Constitution, which vests in it the judicial power of the Commonwealth of Australia. The court was constituted by, and its first members were appointed under, the Judiciary Act 1903. It now operates under sections 71 to 75 of the constitution, the Judiciary Act, and the High Court of Australia Act 1979.
