    St Marys Church of England

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Just across from the Visitors centre is St Marys Church of England. The church was built in 1844-45 and is supposed to be the oldest stone church in Western Australia. The church was not consecrated until 1848 and the congregation was slow. It was another 10 years before a resident clergyman could be attracted to the town. Around the back of the church are gravestones which date back to 1841 which was before the church was built.
