Comments

The former Presbyterian Church building was opened in January 1901 and dedicated as the Queen Victoria Memorial Church - believed to be the first memorial to Queen Victoria in the British Empire. It was officially opened by Anne Bon in 1901, one week after the Queen died.

The church building was paid for by Mrs A Bon, on land donated by her son.  

The church is one of three historic places of worship which are located side-by-side - Anglican/Uniting(Presbyterian)/Catholic and all date back to the pioneer days of the district. Of the three churches this is the only one of red brick, the other two being of timber construction.

More historical information/photographs of the church/congregation are invited. Photographs uploaded 18/11/2017 & 17/7/2019.
