Detention River Christian Community, formerly known as Rocky Cape Christian Community is an Anabaptist Christian community, located between Smithton and Wynyard on the Australian island of Tasmania. The community was founded in 2005 by Elmendorf Christian Community in Minnesota, a community of Hutterite tradition.[1] Detention River is affiliated with the Hutterite Christian Communities.

In 2017 the community was reincorporated as Detention River Christian Community.[2][3][4] It is now led by Trevor Russell.[citation needed]
