The original Kingscote (Queenscliffe) Police Station of four rooms was built in 1884/85 by contractor Wm. Pett and Son. Two cells, stables and a store room were apparently constructed at the same time. The cells were of standard dimensions for the era, seven feet by seven feet for the single cell and seven feet by fourteen feet for the double cell, with wooden beds and pillows.
Major additions to the original building were made in 1910-11 with the inclusion of a Courtoom and office, together with a new kitchen and bathroom area.
The police station moved to a new building in Dauncey Street in 1961.
Auburn, South Australia.
The Old Auburn Police Station and Courthouse were completed in 1860 and later extended.
A variety of stone was used in the construction of the buildings, as well as handsawn Redgum and three different types of paving; flat slate paving, pitch paving and cobble work.
Mount Barker, South Australia.
This is the 'old' Mount Barker Police Station. I have worked in this building. The Police Station was constructed in 1875. The cells located at the rear of the building were built in 1848 and is part of the oldest surviving police complex in South Australia. The cells are the oldest intact stone building in Mount Barker.
