Administrative history

The original St Paul’s Anglican Church of 1842 was designed by colonial architect John Lee Archer and consecrated by Bishop Nixon, the first Bishop of Tasmania. Later, the stone church had to be demolished due to cracks appearing in the walls – salt water was likely used in the mortar. In 1887 it was replaced by the present timber structure.
