The area of the parish includes Central station, Museum station, the southern part of Hyde Park below Park street, and Prince Alfred Park. The parish is bounded by George Street in the west, Park Street and a small part of William Street in the north, a line from the intersection of Yurong and William streets to the intersection of Albion and Elizabeth Street in the east, also part of Elizabeth Street forms the boundary further south, as well as Chalmers Street. Regent Street is the boundary in the south west. It includes the ANZAC War Memorial. The parish is relatively thin east-west, so that Central railway station nearly covers the entire width of the parish.
The Parish was established in 1835- interesting given the 1834 marriage certificate has it named.
