Recently on the way back from Launceston I was driving through Evandale and out of the corner of my eye I spotted this beautiful church naturally framed by the front gates and trees. I drove back around the block and stopped outside the main gate. Even though it was a cloudy and dull sort of day, I just had to photograph this Church. It was set back off the main road surrounded by beautiful gardens and grounds and thought to myself what a great wedding location it would be. The church was St. Andrews Anglican Church built in 1871 in the historical town of Evandale, just south of Launceston and if anyone happens to be having a wedding here or in any of the old churches below, please let me know and I would offer a very special price to photograph your wedding.
After photographing the church above, I was walking back to the car when I noticed another Church on the opposite side of the road. St Andrews Uniting Church. Two beautiful churches in the same location. Evandale is a lovely historic town and well worth a visit.
The brief stop at Evandale to photograph the churches above piqued my interest and on the way to Hobart, I detoured into Ross to look at the old churches there and found the two below. The first church is St John’s Anglican Church built in 1838 and stood out in the late afternoon sun with shadows cast from the nearby tree.
The other church in Ross that I liked was the Uniting Church which was opened in 1868 and is perched on a hill beside the Macquarie River. Unfortunately, the late afternoon sun was on the opposite side and I could only get a photo on the shadow side but the church certainly stood out and looked magnificient.
