St Brigid's Catholic Church stands in a semi-rural setting facing
Flinders Highway in the suburb of Stuart. It is a traditional
timber and corrugated iron building with Gothic features of the
Federation era. Chamferboards are attached to the exposed stud
frame which is diagonally braced and supported additionally by
flying buttresses. Plain bargeboards and a decorative fretwork
panel highlights the frontal gable. Two sets of railed wooden
stairs lead to decorative open porch. A sacristy is attached to
the right side and the whole structure is supported by modern
steel posts. An elaborately carved wooden altar, flanked by a
pair of marble angels, dominates the interior. Pointed windows,
a timber vaulted ceiling and the original wooden pews complete
the interior furnishing.
