Description : The 150kg life size silicon bronze statue of the former Premier of Western Australia is depicted in his business suit casually walking down St George's Terrace, something he often did. Behind him is Parliament House in which he served as a member of Parliament for 29 years (from 1974 until 1982) and in front the Woodside building which is synonymous with Court's involvement in mining. The platform includes laser cut panels made from weather resistant stainless steel, a symbolic touch gesture of his involvement of iron ore in the North-West.

Date Unveiled : The statue of Sir Charles Court was unveiled on 29th of September 2011, to mark his 100th birthday. During the unveiling current Western Australian Premier Colin Barnett said "Sir Charles was a strong advocate for WA and a man who defended the right of the State to manage its own affairs,"

Cost: $483,000

Location : The strolling Court can be found at the intersection of St George's Terrence and Mount Street, Perth, Western Australia.
