Qld. BDM must be down although it does not say so and produces no error message but is giving no results now for events I previously found there.

No idea how Macdonaldtown got listed. It is not at all near it and can't possibly be correct.

Mariners' Church is in the Rocks at the northern end of George St.

Macdonaldtown is south of Redfern.
