The oldest church in Sydney with lovely volunteers who are knowledgeable about the history of the church. Although the congregation has amalgamated with two other Anglican churches and moved elsewhere, the church is still consecrated and holds one service a month. It seems to be...More

Happy to find the church where my grandfather was rector open today. Very atmospheric despite being redundant as a church now.

St. George's Anglican Church & Graveyard was between the Cossit House & the downtown area. We did not go inside, but found the graveyard very peaceful with all the old grave markers. We also noticed the old fashioned parking meters along the street.

Very simple church but pretty on the inside. The grave yard is extremely old. The chair may be a chippendale and is worth seeing. Pretty stained glass windows.

Sydney locals turned out to make this a pleasurable excursion arranged by Silversea. Toured the town and some buildings, toured this historical Church, ended in the "tourist center" staffed by a group of lovely older ladies who provided teal and oat cakes on a blustery...More
