Offices of the Registry

 

The Principal Registry of the High Court of Australia is located at the seat of the Court in Canberra.  There are offices of the Registry at the capital city of each State and in Darwin.

The Registry services in Adelaide, Brisbane, Darwin and Perth are provided by staff of the Federal Court of Australia.  Registry services in Hobart are provided by the Supreme Court of Tasmania.

HCA Response to the COVID-29 Outbreak

From Tuesday 24 March 2020, no face to face services will be provided at the counter.

While the counters are closed, we are still working in registries and remotely to provide services and support to practitioners and litigants via phone and other online services.

The registry will be open to deal with inquiries by phone or email during the restricted hours of 10.00 am to 1.00pm, Monday to Friday.

Digital Lodgment System Portal

In 2020 the High Court of Australia will move from a paper-based Court to one that provides for the electronic lodgment of Court documents.

The Digital Lodgment System Portal (DLS Portal) will be an external facing portal that allows legal firms, legal practitioners and self-represented litigants to register, file documents, receive notifications and track the progress of their cases around the clock.

The system will provide for mandatory electronic lodgment of all documents filed in any case commenced after 1 January 2020.  Register with a simple 3 step process of email verification, registration and approval by the Registry dls.hcourt.gov.au.
