The Federal Court Registry in the Northern Territory is located on level 2 of the Supreme Court Building in State Square.
For your security and safety, closed circuit television surveillance and perimeter security screening operates in the building. Your bag or personal belongings will be x-rayed (security staff can assist with lifting heavy bags) and you will be asked to walk through a scanner. Refusal to comply may result in you being denied entry to the building. Items considered to be a security risk will be confiscated by staff and a receipt provided. They will be returned to you on departure from the building. Information about prohibited items is displayed in the building's foyer. If you have any concerns about your personal security or medical concerns about the screening process, please talk to one of the security staff.
The public enquiry counter is open between 9:00am and 4:00pm.
Telephone enquiries may be made between 8:30am and 5:00pm, except on weekends and public holidays.
