Old Brandon Church
The Old Brandon Church is the place to go if you love historic buildings. Formerly the Saint Patrick's Catholic Church, the building is listed on the Registers of both the National Estate and the National Trust of Queensland.
This excellent example of a 'carpenter Gothic' church has stood on two sites in Brandon. After severe damage from cyclone Aivu in 1989, it was purchased by the Burdekin Shire Council, and in 1991 moved to its present site. It has been lovingly restored and is an excellent subject for structural photography.
On Mondays, combine your visit to see this beautiful building with a visit to the Burdekin Machinery Preservationist's shed right next door. The Old Brandon Church is an hour's drive South of Townsville, and five minutes North of Ayr.
