The first St Michael's Catholic Church was built in 1878, on land donated by John Barnes. It was repaired in 1900 after a cyclone, with a new church erected in 1934.

St Michael’s Catholic Church celebrated 150 years since the first Catholic Church was built at Pine Mountain. A celebratory Mass will be conducted by Bishop Oudeman, followed by a picnic in the church grounds on Saturday March 28, 2015. 

A graveyard is attached to the church, with the oldest headstone for James Smith dated December 1869. It appears the cemetery was in use prior to the erection of the first church.
