The High Court of Australia is the highest court in the Australian judicial system. It was established in 1901 by the Constitution of Australia and is located in Canberra.


The High Court has original jurisdiction in certain matters, such as disputes between states and disputes between the Commonwealth and the states. It also has appellate jurisdiction, meaning it hears appeals from lower courts in both civil and criminal matters.


The High Court is composed of seven judges, including the Chief Justice of Australia.


The judges are appointed by the Governor-General of Australia on the advice of the federal government. They serve until the age of 70.


The decisions of the High Court are final and binding on all lower courts in Australia.


The High Court has played a significant role in shaping the legal and constitutional framework of Australia, including in areas such as Indigenous rights, immigration, and federalism.
