History and Architecture:

The Catholic Church of the Immaculate Conception at Fish Creek was opened and blessed by Bishop Corbett of Sale and the Very Rev. M Maher CM, Provincial of the Vincentians, on 11 December, 1904. The architect was TA Payne and it was constructed for £550 in 1904 by EP (Ted) Harden of Leongatha, who was a builder and undertaker. The original site for the church was donated by William Patrick and John Joseph Ryan, and a further parcel of land was donated later by Burke Buckley.
