As part of the Epping Road upgrade, the historic Wollert Church has now been packed up, picked up and has 'landed' at its new home at the Carome Homestead, 10 Hathfelde Boulevard, Mernda (one of our existing properties) thanks to a joint initiative with Major Road Projects Victoria and City of Whittlesea.
Once it has been reconstructed, renovated and made more accessible in its new location, this lovely little weatherboard church will commence its second life.
Major Road Project Victoria has made a wonderful animation of the project. To watch the animation in full, go to the following link: https://bigbuild.vic.gov.au/projects/mrpv/epping-road-upgrade/wollert-church
