St Mary's by the Sea


There isn't much to see of old Port Douglas, it has long been replaced by posh resort complexes, but this little old church was saved and repositioned picturesquely by the sea. I am sure it's a popular wedding destination and in fact the next day as we watched the sun set over the water we chatted to a lady on the bench beside us whose son had been married there that week.

  1. Weatherboard churches, now that's something you don't regularly see down south. Surprisingly, it reminds me of the North Island of NZ - lots of trees in the past so lots of weatherboard buildings, including churches.

    1. I agree, we don't see a lot of them down this way. I also think the weatherboard buildings in Wellington are lovely.

  2. It is a great location now. The townspeople are to be congratulated for insisting that it shouldn't be demolished.

    1. I agree it has been beautifully place and I'm glad the locals had a vision for it.
