History and Architecture:

The parish of St Brigid's was officially established in 1865 with Father McAuliffe as priest. The original Macquarie Street church was in use until it collapsed during a storm on August 22, 1869.

The original St. Brigid’s sandstone church was designed by Mr Edward Gell, a leading architect in the colony, who had been a pupil to the famous Pugin in Europe. The sandstone walls, locally quarried on the west bank of the Macquarie River, were 12 feet above ground level in May 1870.

A Foundation stone reads, " Dedicated by Most Rev Patrick Dougherty Bishop of Bathurst 1 - 7 - 1990".
