I lived in Lower Fort Street, where the church is located, for 15 years. The church is on the corner of Argyle Street and and easily accessible from the bus terminus (431/433 from Glebe and Balmain which runs down George St Sydney). It was built when Sydney was still a colony run by a garrison of soldiers. It is a... More

Garrison Church lacked the decoration of some other church. The simple design was rich with arched windows and decorated turrets, but in a simple, understated way. Most notable was the Sydney Harbour Bridge in the background. With a wedding taking place, I couldn’t go inside, but the Garrison Church seems to be a nice highlight to the Millers Point area.

Officially named the Holy Trinity Church, this building gets its current moniker because it was the colony's first military church. We visited the interior at the end of our Rocks Discovery tour. There is a small museum/exhibit in the entryway displaying early Australian military and historical items, along with numerous plaques on the left (West) wall dedicated to various Australian...

This is one of the oldest churches - construction started in 1840. It's a well kept historic building in the Millers Point district (adjacent to the Rocks area, but uphill). If you are walking around the district, certainly stop in.
