The organ was built around 1957 for the former church at this location by H.W. Jarrott of Brisbane.3 Bert Jarrott (b. 1930) had previously worked with Whitehouse Bros for a short period, and this was the first organ he built after setting up his own business. The console was secondhand. The pipework, which came from L. Verschueren, Heythuysen, Netherlands, was entirely enclosed.4 The organ was moved from the old church into the present building when it was opened around 1979. The console of the organ was removed and placed in storage around 2007.5 The instrument was removed by David Cahill of Warwick in the first half of 2013, in the hope of finding it a new home.6
