Visit one of the oldest Anglican Churches in the State.  St. Mark's stands proud amongst ancient gum trees and its cemetery contains many graves of interest, including that of explorer John Horrocks.  From humble beginnings with calico-covered windows, dirt floor and only 6 seats, the church has seen many baptisms, weddings and funerals over the past 160 years.  Off-street parking.  Bookings required for groups only.  Join us for Sunday Service at 11 am and the doors will re-open to the public at 1.00 pm.
