Pokeno Art Festival


The Church of St Mary on the Hill

The beautiful church of St Mary on the Hill, Avon Road, Pokeno, is a well-known landmark. Travellers on State Highway 2, travelling west, admire the tall spire, standing out among the trees opposite Birt’s Timber Mill. The story of St Mary’s is a fascinating one and the full detail can be found in the history of the church, The Bells of St Mary’s, written for the occasion of its 120th Anniversary in 2020. Copies will be available at the time of the Arts Festival and Garden Ramble.
