First wooden church was completed in 1868, but lasted only four years due to weather damage and white ants. A further church was completed in 1872 and opened by Rev Dr James Quinn, Bishop of Queensland. Current church was built from 1883 to 1887. It was opened on 17/7/1887 by Bishop Dunne, who later became the first Archbishop of Queensland. Photographs uploaded 29/10/2016.
