This church has been here for a very long time. I use to attend it as a little girl. It's well maintained and always lovely to visit.

Went to Mass at 8:00 on Sunday morning. Not such a large congregation. Musicians led the singing and encouraged participation. For a holiday destination I would have expected to be made more welcome upon arrival. Also, no vigil mass in Coolangatta.

Just average local one. If you expect europian breathtaking welcome sight seeing, don't bother. It's more like local. I don't know why they put this place in here after all.

It should be an Old beautiful Church, however it is closed unless on Mass Days, so if visitors want to see the interior of this church, they have to visit it on any Mass Days. Sitting elegantly on a high ground, easy to recognize from a distance, this nice landmark is located at the centre of Coolongata. Will visit again... More

A nice historic church located on Mclean street, well worth the stop to have a look. It is only a very short drive from the Kirra Hill lookout.

Was married there 23 yrs ago. The church on the hill is just what you imagine and a great setting for any wedding.

My brothers and sisters all went to St Augustine's school and of course the church. I can remember when the extensions were done and Father Boland was saying it would take 10 years to pay it off. As an 11 year old this seemed like a very long time. We had my mother & fathers funerals here. When I go... More

I have very fond memories of St. Augustine Church and School. I started school there until I left to go to High School at Southport. Made my 1st Holy Communion and Conformation there and remember the Corpus Christi processions around the block. It has always been a beautiful Church. My last visit there was the 75th Anvniversary of the parish... More

The times were right for us and the parishioners inviting. I look forward to a return service at St Augustine's. It was an easy walk from our accommodation and a swim after mass was enjoyable.
