Figtree Chapel

Figtree Chapel just before demolition

When next visiting the Hunters Hill Hotel stroll across the road to the Moreton Bay fig tree and small garden opposite the shops.  You’ll discover underneath the shade of the tree a sandstone plinth with a plaque. This marks the original entrance way to Figtree Chapel, the oldest public building in Hunters Hill, which was saved at the 11th hour from total destruction.

The sandstone church was relocated just down the road to Figtree Road, Hunters Hill where is resplendently stands today as St Mark’s Church.  After it was moved, the congregation added stained glass windows and other traditional features which have enhanced this lovely and quaint church.
