History and Architecture:

The Church was constructed in c.1892 by local builders Alexander and Torgrimson, who also provided the furniture. Dedication of the new church was performed by the Bishop of Wangaratta on Friday 31 July 1903. A rectory was built to the east of the church in 1895. This was sold in 1976 and relocated to Tocumwal Road, near Devenish for use as a private residence. In 1928 the St Luke's Anglican Church Hall was erected for use as a Sunday school.

A wall plaque reads, " To the Glory of God to Commemorate the 75th anniversay of St Luke's Dookie 15-10-78.
