The Federal Court Registry in South Australia is located on the fifth floor of the Roma Mitchell Commonwealth Law Courts Building, 3 Angas Street, Adelaide.

The public enquiry counter is located on level 5.

Courtrooms are located on levels 5 and 7.

There are noticeboards on the ground floor and on levels 5 and 7 which contain details of cases which will be heard in the Court each day.


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 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 Registry counter is open to the public from 9.00am until 4.30pm. Telephone enquiries can be made from 8.30am until 5.00pm except on weekends and public holidays.

A list of matters to be heard in Court, including the commencement time and the courtroom number, can be found on this website.
