No. 1384 - Tullah - Community Church

Tullah is a small town on the Murchison Highway approximately 110 kilometres south of Burnie. It was established in 1900 as a remote mining settlement called Mount Farrell. In the 1970s Tullah was used by the Hydro Electric Commission to house workers engaged in the various parts of the Pieman River Power Scheme. At this time Tullah’s population peaked at 2500. The town is divided into two sections; the older northern mining settlement and the newer southern part developed by the Commission. Four churches were built at Tullah representing the Methodist, Catholic and Anglican denominations. These have all closed and in recent years were replaced by the Tullah Community Church.

The Tullah Community Church appears to have closed in recent years. Further information about this former church is welcomed and I can be contacted through “comments” or through the ‘Churches of Tasmania” Facebook group. The photograph used in this article was taken in 2023 by Derek Flannery for the “Australia’s Christian Heritage” website. Further photos of the church can be viewed in the link provided in ‘Sources”.
