Under the "Liquor Act 1912", licensing courts were constituted within previously established licensing districts. The constitution of a licensing court within the licensing district was confirmed in the Queensland Government Gazette in February 1913.

Licensing courts were responsible for granting, regulating and rescinding liquor licences within a licensing district. Licences were issued annually to victuallers and wine sellers. Licences were also required to sell liquor aboard passenger ships (packet licences) and in billiard and bagatelle establishments.

Under the "Liquor Acts Amendment Act 1935" the Licensing Courts were to be called Courts of Petty Sessions. The Licensing Commission, which was established under this Act, assumed responsibility for issuing licences while Courts of Petty Sessions retained responsibility for maintaining the registers of licences and records of charges and complaints.
