St Patrick`s Church`s foundation stone was laid on St Patrick`s Day, 1875, and completed in 1886. The church was built of local stone in Gothic Revival design and features imported stain glass windows which were imported from Italy.
St Patrick`s Church was designed and built under the supervision of ex-convict Joseph Nunan, who was commissioned by the resident priest of the time, Father Patrick Gibney.
