This historic church with a tower which can be seen for some distance, is home to a pipe organ built in 1920 by J. E . Dodd of Adelaide . It was built at a cost of 838 pounds 14 shillings and was installed as a memorial to those who served in World War I. In 1965, at a cost of $16, 947, the organ was rebuilt by George Fincham and Sons of Melbourne, who electrified the action, installed a new console and made tonal additions and 3 alterations. The organ has 23 speaking stops, 7 couplers and electro-pneumatic action - all controlled from a detached stopkey console with a capture combination action.
The stops are as follows:
