This little community church is old by any measure. It was built by the Wesleyan community in 1836, just one year after John Batman left the newly named Evandale to found Melbourne. The chapel’s interior is modern, and with touches of stylish decor, a queen bed and ensuite it’s serene and unique accommodation with a tangible history. Besides seeing its fair share of weddings, baptisms and funerals, it has reputedly also served as a Druids meeting room, but don’t worry, these days it will be yours to enjoy exclusively. Although there are some very good eateries nearby, there’s a full kitchen here so you may be tempted to eat in or enjoy the alfresco dining area in the garden.
