The areas of the Court are:

As with the County Court, the Supreme Court has both trial and appellate jurisdictions. Whereas the County Court hears appeals from the Magistrates’ and Children’s Court the Supreme Court hears

These offences will often proceed through the Magistrates' Court through to the Supreme Court by way of committal proceedings.
