Buckland Parish

             Welcome to the Anglican Parish of Buckland.                                             Ministering in the communities of                                                        Buckland, Orford, Triabunna and Woodsdale.

The Parish of Buckland lies on the beautiful East Coast of Tasmania. It comprises of the coastal
communities of Orford and Triabunna, that lie on the shores of Prosser Bay and Spring Bay,
sheltered to the East by Maria Island. While Orford is known as a retirement, holiday village,
Triabunna is renowned for its fishing and is the woodchip port.
The inland centres of Buckland, Woodsdale and Levendale are farming communities,
renowned for their wool, lamb and timber production.
The inland skyline is dominated by Mt. Hobbs while the Thumbs and
Maria Island dominate the Orford/Triabunna skyline. From the ruggedness of Paradise Gorge to the rich Prossers Plains it is a diverse and interesting area.

 Many of the rural holdings are still held by descendants of the original settlers 

Like most rural communities the members of the Parish of Buckland are deeply involved in the wider community. Members of the Parish can be found supporting Meals-On-Wheels, Rotary, Lions, Probus, the local schools and many other community and sporting organizations.

One of the big outreaches for the Parish for many years has been the Triabunna based, Parish Op-Shop. Through the op-shop that the parish has given assistance to many locals and visitors alike, being a place to meet socially while helping to support the Parish in its ministry in the community.


The Parish continues to support the Breakfast Programme at the Triabunna District School, we also distribute food parcels to families within our Parish and provide welfare where necessary.  These outreach programs are provided for, from donations from our Parishioners with grateful thanks.  Anyone wishing to donate to these programmes are very welcome to contact the Parish Office.
