|About these ratings|
Settlers in St. George began building an opulent replacement to St. Peter's Church in 1870. But there was poor planning, which led to insufficient funding and creative squabbles. The project was eventually abandoned following a debilitating storm that left a crumbling ruin and eyesore. Cut to present day, and the structure has been fortified to withstand visitors, though it's still unfinished with only the sky for a ceiling.
If you only stop by one spot in the historic village of St. George, travelers implore you to make it the Unfinished Church. One pleased one writes into TripAdvisor that the "juxtaposition of the ruined gothic architecture and the serene surroundings is amazing." Another TripAdvisor user says, "The big open windows, grass floor, and blue sky above make this really nice."
Bus 1, 3, 10 or 11 will take you to the village of St. George and the Unfinished Church on Head of Duke of Kent Street. You can stroll through its gothic pillars from sunrise to sunset.
