We visited this area as part of the Western Wildflower Season, and were greatly surprised when we visited the Church of Our Lady of Mt Carmel Church, which incorporated a lovely walk to and fro from it.

We were lucky when we visited that the church was open. The building surrounding it and the detail in the stonework are amazing. The church is so full of character. Certainly worth a visit.

Very similar to the Geraldton Cathedral this church was built by Mons Hawes along the same lines as the Cathedral. Well worth a look.
