On a grassy knoll, south of Beaudesert surrounded by palms sits a little brown wooden church called All Saints Anglican Church. Known locally as the 'Tamrookum Church', it can be found on Tamrookum Church Road diagonally opposite from the Tamrookum Hall. Being set on a hill, it can be seen from the Mt Lindesay Highway.
Built in 1915, this pretty, family owned church is now used once a month for services but is available for weddings and christenings. It is also used on a regular basis for music events.
Made of timber and designed by renowned architect Robin Dodd, the church was built as a memorial to pastoralist Robert Collins, who is also considered the father of the national parks movement in Queensland. The stained glass windows of the church were restored to their former glory in 2008 after being made and designed in England.
The well maintained grounds and small cemetery can be accessed at any time however visits inside are by appointment only. Services are held at 10.30am on the third Sunday of each month.
