Description

Christ Church Illawarra is an isolated church built on a hill near the Tasmanian town of Longford. The small bluestone building was built in 1842 by Edward Dumaresq on his property in the Gothic Revival style. The tower and asp were designed in the Arts and Crafts style by architect Alexander North (1858-1945) and added in 1910. The church features lancet and rounded-arch windows and butresses. It is also a significant place for Australian art enthusiasts, with an altar painted by Arthur Boyd, and the grave of Tom Roberts in the nearby cemetery.
