This church has been used by the Gunners of the Royal Regiment of Australian Artillery as their church for WA. It is also a very old local church and has very old monuments to pioneer families inside.

This is a small but pretty little church located in the historic Guildford area of Perth. The church doesn't seem to be open except on Sundays but it's still possible to walk around the outside. Worth a quick look.
