A beautiful church and churchyard. Burial place of Arthur Phillip 1738-1814 - First Governor of New South Wales Australia, Walter Sickert the artist and the man who invented Plasticine (apologies for forgetting his name.) If you enjoy history and beautiful memorials, it's well worth a visit. The Rector and staff are super helpful too. monuments

This place is a nightmare especially for traffic because of the Toll Bridge. Frankly the whole village is being ruined by the sheer amount of traffic that moves through this little fragile village. You spend most the time trying not to get run over if you're not too busy choking to death on car fumes, poor gridlocked village. Don't waste your time just DON'T BOTHER.

Very interesting because it shows how depends on your perspective. Here at St Nicholas Arthur Phillip is a heroic coloniser. For me as an Australian he represents a brave pioneer who began a cultural clash and dispossesion of another nation made up of the various indigenous clans of the Australian Aborigines. It js taking too long for Australians to deal with the bad effects that resulted.
