‪For a tiny country town, this is one exceptional church. There are several other historic churches in the town but this is by far the largest and the grandest.
A Catholic Church with an imposing Romanesque style and a red brick exterior, it was built in 1934.
Despite its appearance of wealth and grandeur, it was built during a period of severe depression. In the face of widespread hardship when money must have been tight, the Irish-Catholic rural community financially supported the building of the church, determined to build a church that would reflect their faith. The Church was completed and finished in 6 months.
The main feature is the impressive sandstone circular window. Reminiscent of European churches, it catches the eye immediately. The wheel-like window dominates the front of the church, sitting above the portal. It has 16 spoked segments leading from a circular hub, with 16 outer semi-circles. It took some effort to get it here and finally, it arrived by train, packed in sand to protect it.
Other external features include spiral pillars, semi-circular arches and sandstone carved oak leaf motifs.
Unfortunately there is not much opportunity to see inside as the doors. This is a functioning church and is only open for mass(5pm or 6pm on Saturdays). Whilst you might be able to put your head through the door to have a quick look, you cannot walk around inside or take photos during mass.
We walked past it twice. The second time, was much later in the day, around 7pm when the sun was setting. It lit up the red brick exterior with an orange glow - very beautiful. Interestingly, the church is designed so that the sun sets directly through the wheel-window.
You will also see a couple of other buildings next door. These includes the Presbytery (1928), St Joseph's Convent and Sacred Heart School (1928) and an earlier school/convent complex which dates from 1867-1884.‬

‪A must to visit when in Taralga. The altar is magnificent and made of local marble. Not open all the time but we were fortunate that someone was there to allow us entry. For a lovely little village the Church is magnificent.‬

‪The church is large with an interesting portico but was locked up. I think someone was around but we couldn’t find them. It’s worth a walk from the main street to see all of Taralga’s impressive old buildings, with a converted church close by this one and opposite a stone cottage, then many great buildings on the main strip, and some more churches and buildings at the north end of town.‬

‪it would be very easy to drive right through Taralga and miss this lovely church, but it is worth making the small detour off the highway. It is an impressive brick structure with a large rose window, and unusual twisted brick columns at the front. Inside, we are impressed by the stained glass windows, the side chapels, and the high altar with its elaborate marble construction. On either side of the altar, a lovely angel holds an arc of lights. If you are lucky, you may meet Sister Bernadette who is a driving force in this parish! Definitely worth a look.‬
