Overview

This Anglican church has a colorful history. It was built in the 1860s about 300 kilometers away from Canberra. Originally, this church was the Rookwood Cemetery funeral train station. This train line took coffins out to the Sydney Necropolis for burial until the 1920s. The building then fell into disrepair, and in 1957 its stonework was bought by the Parish of North Canberra and rebuilt in its new location. All Saints Church is simply a stunning sight, with many anecdotes and legends surrounding the architectural details.
