St Mary’s Anglican Church in Busselton is the oldest stone church in the state. Built by the early settlers in the 1840s this beautiful historic building was the primary place of worship for the Vasse community. A visit to the charming old church is a must. Take your time to truly capture the beauty of this renovated building.
Wander around the graveyard and read the inscriptions on many of the settlers’ tombstones which are still in their original state. If your visit falls on a day of worship the congregation welcomes you to attend their church service.
The church played an important role in the development of the town of Busselton. Learn more about its significance as you explore and read up on its history.
Take a walk along the Vasse River starting at church and take in some of the most interesting attractions Busselton has to offer. A walk to the famous Busselton Jetty and a swim at one of the white sandy beaches is highly recommended. Busselton is a three hour drive south of Perth.
