Welcome to Churches of Tasmania
I love history and photography and have a deep interest in architecture. When I started this blog in 2017 I had the goal of photographing every historical church in Tasmania. This was initially driven by the proposed mass sell-off of Anglican churches. I was concerned that these buildings would be modified and no longer be accessible once in private hands.
As the years have passed this goal has changed to writing short histories of each and every church built in Tasmania, of which there are about 1500.
My earliest posts are rather amateurish but my research and writing has improved somewhat over the years. In time my hope is to revise and update every article to a publishable standard. I have received an overwhelming amount of material from followers of the blog and I will incorporate this into the articles in the revision phase. Eventually I hope to publish the best of the articles.
As of October 2021, I have broken the 1000th article barrier and still have about 500 churches to go. At present the blog attracts about 1000 views per day and I hope that this will continue to grow.

I am happy for followers of the blog to share my photographs for non-commercial purposes. If needed for other purposes, please ask and credit the source. No charge will be sought.
I welcome feedback and if I have made errors and typos please let me know. I suck at proofreading my own work.
