Anglican Church of Mount Gambier

The Anglican Church of Mount Gambier is a religious attraction in Mount Gambier, popular for its peculiar structure and rich past. The Anglican Church, located on Bay Street, was constructed in 1865 using the design inspired by W. T. Gore.

The use of dolomite and the subsequent installation of the roof has made the church one of the region’s most iconic structures for more than a century now. From a distance, a casual glance of the church is hard to miss as the pink dolomite stands out creating a sharp contrast with the azure skies.

It’s particularly stunning during the late afternoons when it casts a breathtaking silhouette. Add to this the unusual gabled tower, and it is easy to see why the church is renowned as a religious attraction.

Take a tour to learn more about this remarkable structure. While at it, you may want to peek at the foundation stone that was laid on 21st February 1865. The stone has inscribed on it the following words, “To The Glory of God This Stone was laid by T C Ellis Esq. December 10th 1915. Church Jubilee Day.” In addition to this, another stone features the following words: “D M G Commemorating The Rebuilding of This Hall After Destruction By Fire – This Tablet was unveiled by His Excellency Sir Willoughby Norrie KCMG CB DSO MC Governor of South Australia 26th March 1950.”

Both inscriptions give insight into the church’s past while capturing the essence and place of the church in modern Mount Gambier community. Immerse yourself in its features and find out more about the Anglican denomination of the region.

There are also several other attractions worth checking out near Christ Church. The Jubilee Hall is worth mentioning; it was built in 1915, fifty years after the church construction began. The hall was, however, destroyed by a fire in 1951. It was then replaced by using the exact same building blocks with the original foundation stone still in place. Other interesting places include the 1869 Sunday School and the Mount Gambier Christian Centre.
