Halkett Presbyterian Church opened it's doors on 26 October 1873. Newspapers of the day said it could seat 100 people. It is situated on Halkett Road almost in the centre of Halkett, a rural area between West Melton and Courtenay that was formerly a large sheep run. Halkett gets it's name from a Captain Halkett who purchased a large chunk of land in the area, and also presented land for a school to be built.

The adjoining cemetery is small, and contains the names of some of the area's earliest settlers including McKay, Whyte, Henderson and Ford. There is also a war memorial situated directly in front of the church.
