It was very disappointing last weekend when I went to visit my Mother and Godmothers grave. I had to walk through knee-deep weeds growing in between the rows of graves and to avoid falling into a potential pothole and injuring myself, I had to walk on the concrete edges of the graves. Not a happy customer. I only hope they... More

We stopped in Richmond to see the Richmond Bridge and St John's church. The church is a short walk from the bridge. We parked next to the bridge and after walking around the bridge we took the short walk up to the church.

A beautiful well-preseved and still used church - you could feel the Christian history all through the small church. It is near the historic bridge As a Christian, this a great complement to our trip to Richmond - as was the Anglican church.

This church was built in 1836. It is of significant heritage value and is easy to find. We walked around the church and took photos. Worth the time to visit and its free. Great for anyone interested in local history.

This is a beautiful old stone church of the Catholic faith that sits at the lower end of Yiork Street in pleasant gardens and claimed to be the oldest in Australia that is still operating. Worth a look.

This is the oldest Catholic Church still in use in Australia and now has a Catholic School next door as also a very well maintained Cemetery. Built in 1836. Peaceful and serene setting.

Tucked away , quiet place to stop and pray by lighting a candle and reflecting. Oldest Church in Australia still in use. Honesty box to purchase Rosary beads or history of Church or St Christopher medals.

Amazing.... What more can I say. To see the past recorded like this was something else. The workmanship that went into some of the grave stones is just amazing.

We loved the walk to St John's from the bridge and then enjoyed the view from this little church on the hill. It was very small and in great condition inside. Didn't realise this was the oldest Catholic church in Australia. A lovely little stop-over when in Richmond.

Thank Suzan P
