There are three buildings in this church complex. The Wesleyan Church was opened in 1863. The Weslyans were early arivals in Dunolly, as they were on many goldfields. The early timber church building was errected beore the town survey of 1857 and was somewhere where the adjacent crossroad is now. In front of the church is a Golden Way information board. The grounds are used for a car boot sale held on the 2nd Saturday of each month.

Anglican Church and Hall
Corner of Market St and Thompson St, Dunolly.

St John’s Anglican Church was completed in 1869 with the roof finished with a ₤300 loan from the discoverers of the Welcome Stranger nugget, John Deason and Richard Oates.  The picture below far left shows construction in 1868. The stained glass window had small panels added as a WW1 memorial. Inside is an 1879 Fincham organ, original except for its motorised blower.  The smaller building at right rear is the Anglican Hall, opened in May 1858 as a Church of England School. Picture below left shows the school in 1861. The hall became a common school after the May 1862 Common Schools Act provided government funding, provided that religious instruction was not compulsory.  The Vicarage in adjacent Market Street is gothic in style and built prior to the church in 1865, to attract a suitable person.
