This former church property is now privately owned.

A number of church buildings have been erected on this site over the years. The first foundation stone was laid on 31/10/1858 and the church opened in 1863 by Archbishop Carr. Another church was built in 1883 but this was significantly damaged by a cyclone in 1926. Using the original foundations, furnishings the church was rebuilt about 1953 and opened and blessed by the Most Rev Justin Simonds, Archbishop of Melbourne.
