Comments

The former St Andrew's Presbyterian Church, Katoomba property is now privately owned. It was opened on 25/1/1914. However, the size of the congregation was too small, especially during the winter months, to maintain. By 1966 the congregation was informed of the church's financial position and by about 1971 it was closed. No other details are known. More historical information/photographs of the former church/congregation are invited, Photographs uploaded 30/10/2019.
