“Worth a visit for those with an interest in military history.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2010

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 military groups. The latter (coupled with the historical importance of the building) was worth a visit for myself, although others may find minimal return from a trip here.

Worth a visit for those with the interest; like Cadman's cottage this structure is best viewed in the context of the surrounding area.

“Nice historic church”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2010

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.
