St Patrick's Catholic Church, Tamborine. "Now standing at the three-way intersection at Tamborine, St Patrick’s was originally situated near the south bank of the Albert River on Mr. Michael Yores property “Spiddle” in the early 1870’s.

The first Catholic Cemetery was located near the church but was subject to flooding and land was later allocated by the Plunkett Family on Plunkett Road. This is still in use today for the Catholic congregation of the district...

Messrs. Yore and Plunkett were instrumental in the starting of a Provisional school that used the St. Patricks church building from 1874 until 1905, on June 4th. 1905 Fr. Enright held the first service in the new chapel on the original site, the building was moved to the present site, that of the old Railway House and renovated, under the direction of Monsignor Steele and in June of 1966 Archbishop O’Donnell of Brisbane, dedicated the Church of St. Patrick in honour of the pioneer Irish settlers of the Logan and Tamborine Districts."
