The striking remains of the Wesleyan Methodist Church are an iconic feature of Tarnagulla, a gorgeous old gold rush town in Victoria's renowned Golden Triangle. 

This beautiful old church, opened in 1865, is a must-see when passing through the town and is a fantastic subject for photography. 

A fire destroyed much of the building in 2000, leaving the brick/stone remains we see today. 

The church is situated on private property so visitors must not enter, but you will get a great view from the roadside. 

Be sure to walk over and check out the adjacent Poverty Mine Monument as well as have a look at the old mine headframe beyond it. 

A small information sign stands before the church gate and displays the following text:


The foundation stone was laid in October 1864. The church opened in 1865 with a seating capacity for 300 people. The church was badly damaged by fire in 2000 and is now privately owned.
