Built by the early settlers in the 1840's, this beautiful historic building on Queen Street is the oldest stone church in the state, and is still a place of worship for the Busselton Community today.
The construction of St Mary’s Anglican Church commenced in 1844, using limestone and jarrah with sheoak shingles for the roof. The church was consecrated in 1848.

Visitors can wander around the graveyard and read the inscriptions on many of the settlers' tombstones, which are still in their original state. These include those of the Bussell family, one of the first European families to settle in the area.

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.

Op shop open Mon-Friday - staffed by lovely volunteers. The main building has $2 an item mens, womens, 50c kids' rooms, $2 shoes, jewellry, good books at 50c ea, the shed at rhe back has bric a brac kids toys, clothes on 50c specials! Lovely staff. Trolleys to shop with. The main building does have w/chair access but it is rather narrow so only compact wheelchairs/strollers can access. Plenty of street side parking, just opposite a lovely green strip by the river where kids can watch the birds.
