The church at Port Arthur is not the largest building on the site, but it is among the most handsome and certainly seems to be the most frequently photographed. It was not simply convict built, but was also convict designed. It has a decidedly Gothic feel to it. It doesn’t look like a terribly large building, but I’ve read that it could accommodate 1,000 people. Interestingly, because it served people of so many denominations, it remained a non-denominational church—one of the first in Australia. The timber roof was lost more than 100 years ago to a fire, but the solidly built stone walls remain.
