St James' Church

This fine sandstone church, with its elegant tower and copper-sheathed spire, is the oldest ecclesiastical building in the city.

The commemorative tablets on the walls read like a page from a history of early Australia. Don’t miss the little children’s chapel either, which is located in the crypt. The chapel is decorated with an enchanting mural inspired by the Christmas carol ‘I Saw Three Ships Come Sailing In’, which depicts the land and seascapes of Sydney Harbour.

There are regular lunchime concerts.

173 King St, opposite Hyde Park; (02) 8227 1300.
