Built by the early settlers, this beautiful historic building on the corner of Queen Street and Peel Terrace is the oldest stone church in the State of Western Australia and is still a place of worship for the Busselton community today. Constructed of limestone and jarrah with a sheoak shingle roof, building commenced in 1844 and the church was consecrated in 1848. If you can take the time to look around the graveyard and read the inscriptions, many of the settlers' tombstones are still in their original state, including those of the Bussell family, one of the first European families to settle in the area.
