St Georges Church

St Georges Church, Mt Wilson

A distinctive landmark of the village is is St Georges church and burial ground. The area was first settled in the 1880s by wealthy Sydneysiders looking for a cool summer retreat. The church was consecrated in 1916.

  2. I love the perspective of this shot, Joan. Those grave markers/head stones/whatevers sure look like they are from the un-poor. Maybe a bit too tidy for my scuffy appreciation.
