  • A beautiful, the oldest stone church in the Otago. Situated on a shaded place. Worth a visit when visiting Dunedin.

  • We did not go inside but just walked aroud the grounds, its a very embolding building during our time here the dark clouds gave it a an even more dynamic shadow over the city. 
  • Very beautiful church - and the grounds surrounding it are lovely. A nice guide to the history of the church provided inside.
