The former Wesleyan Church and Sunday School Hall are a historical part of the Ballarat landscape.

The buildings are architecturally important mainly because they are the work of the firm of architects Terry and Oakden. As you can see, the work produced by the architects is top notch.

With its Gothic design, polychrome brickwork, elongated windows and unique design, the church and Sunday school hall are a great place to visit.

The building features a stunning amphitheatre-style seating and at one point housed Ballarat's first pipe organ.

The buildings are a symbol of the religious faith and a symbol of the identity of the Wesleyan community in Ballarat.

The church was constructed between 1883 and 1884 and the former Wesleyan Sunday School, constructed in 1870, was designed by a talented local architect by the name of JA Doane.

If you fancy a visit whilst in the area, you will find the former Wesleyan Church and Sunday School at 101 Dana Street and Cnr Lydiard Street Ballarat Central, Ballarat City, Victoria, Australia.
