The former St Peter’s Catholic Church is in the small Tasmanian town of Kempton. The foundation stone for the red brick church was laid by Monsignor Gilleran in 1918 and the building was completed in 1923. St Peter’s was designed by architect Alan Cameron Walker (1864-1931) in the Romanesque Revival style. It features semi-circular arches on the doorways, windows, and decorative details. The building also has corner buttresses, a tower with a parapet and corner crenels, stained glass windows, and a spire. It is now a private residence.
