Vaucluse, St Michael's Anglican Church

A view of St Michael's Anglican Church from the ornate entrance on the corner of Vaucluse Road and Gilliver Avenue, in the eastern suburb of Vaucluse. This heritage listed sandstone church was designed by Edmund Blacket in the Gothic architectural style and built in 1877.

  4. This stone clad Anglican beauty is ornate and substantial, looking as if it were lifted from England a few centuries ago. Nice!
