Hunter Baillie Memorial Presbyterian Church

Location: Johnston Street, Annandale, NSW 2038

Constructed: 1886-1889


The Hunter Baillie Memorial Presbyterian Church, built in the Gothic style, is the best example of its type in Sydney. It boasts a breathtaking 55 metre high spire supported on flying buttresses. The famous Hill & Son organ, standing on a raised platform at the rear of the church, is one of the best-preserved and most visually appealing instruments built by the firm in the last decade of the 19th century.
