The Uniting Church at Ross, Tasmania, which was opened in 1885. The church is in a traditional gothic style, with an interior ceiling made of oregon pine and tasmanian blackwood pews.
The uniting church replaced the First Methodist church which fell into disrepair.
Flagstones at the base of the church tower are from the original 1838 Wesleyan Chapel. They were erected in 1935 as a memorial to the pioneer Methodists of Ross.
The town of Ross itself is listed on the Register of the National Estate and many of the town’s historic buildings, many built from sandstone, are listed in their own right.
