Artist's Description

No alteration here
ne of Port Macquarie’s most historic buildings, the St Thomas’ Church dominates the landscape by land and river, as it did in early times.

It is the fifth oldest Anglican Church still is use in Australia and was built by convict labour under military supervision. Although the foundation stone was laid in 1824 the first service was not held until 1828.

Beneath the floor of the front pews in the grave of Captain Rolland, who died of sunstroke and was buried one month before his second -in-command laid the foundation stone during a service conducted by Reverend Thomas Hassall.

The Church is classified by the National Trust of Australia (NSW) and is also registered on the National Estate.

Other early buildings on the site are the former military surgeon’s residence, now the Administrative Centre and the surgeon’s dispensary, now the Colonial Chapel of Christ the Healer.
