Steeped in history and mystery, a visit to the Parish of Pella can feel like a trip to another time. The map below shows some of the significant landmarks on your drive through Pella, all worth visiting along the way.

Look out for the Stasinowsky Lime Kiln. Built in 1914, it was the source of lime for many of the limestone buildings in the region and significant, because it is a kiln type rarely found in Victoria.

Don’t miss the striking St John's Lutheran Church built in 1911 with local limestone and still operating today. Services are conducted weekly along with occasional concerts. If you are up for an exceptional and unique experience that you will want to talk about for months, this is it!

Pella Mystery House

A small two room dwelling is found 500 metres further into the bush block past Stasinowsky Lime Kiln. Constructed from local limestone, the 'house' is another example of the stonework techniques employed in the building of the Church. Little reference is made of this building and it's original purpose remains a mystery.

St Johns Lutheran Church stands testament to the strong German heritage of this region. The church's centrepiece is the pipe organ (circa 1885) moved from South Melbourne in 1970.
