Millers Point, The Garrison Church

The Garrison Church is a heritage building located at the corner of Lower Fort Road and Argyle Street, in inner city suburb of Millers Point. The church was built in the early 1840s from sandstone quarried in nearby Argyle Street, known as the Argyle Cut. It was officially called the Holy Trinity Church and was the colony's first military church for soldiers from the military garrison at Dawes Point.

  2. Damn, I was in Sydney earlier this year, looking for buildings designed for convicts or soldiers. I actually found more pubs than churches :)

    Loved Hels comment...'more pubs than churches' and feel the need to add: 'as it should be!'
