St Johns is an old church with some spectacular stained glass windows. Peaceful and beautiful and worth a visit. Park at the nearby Westfield mall.

Great for history buff. Lovely church. Stained class, and plaque memorials that celebrate a couple wives. I liked these as they were so beautifully written. History is interesting. Location is close to restaurants like Italian and Seafood.
