St Matthias Anglican Church

431 Windermere Road, Windermere TAS 7252

St Matthias Anglican Church, at Windermere, is one of Tasmania's most beautiful heritage listed churches. Situated on the banks of the picturesque Tamar River, St Matthias Anglican Church was built in 1842 fulfilling a promise by Dr Matthius Gaunt to his young wife before they left England. When Dr Gaunt resolved to emigrate to Van Diemen's Land in 1831, his wife was concerned that there may not be a church in the area where they would eventually make their home. Dr Gaunt promised that if there was not, he would build one for her. Consecrated in 1845, St Matthias is one of Australia's oldest churches in continous use since its foundation. A Eucharist Service is held every second and fourth Sunday at 1030. St Matthias is one of the most photographed churches in Tasmania.This beautiful bluestone gothic chapel with its romantic history is a popular spot for weddings and picnics. The churchyard is an ideal spot for photography buffs and a stroll through the 170 year old graveyard with the jetty and pontoon next door is said to be a terrific fishing spot. The scenic drive around Windermere road is an easy detour from the East Tamar Highway and offers spectacular river views.
