An extremely interesting underground church. Would have liked to have been there on a Sunday to be able to worship there as well.

What a wonderful experience as are all the underground spots in Coober Pedy. The Minister was warm and welcoming and happy for photos and filled with information. It is a beautiful church to visit

It is no surprise that Coober Pedy locals used their unique construction techniques (ie tunneling) to build this church. Definitely worth a look

Good to see but once you are inside it is not much different to any experience that is underground, this just happens to be a church. The best part is this May be open when other attractions are not so you can visit then.

I have visited many churches, mosques, cinagogs and temples on my trips around the world and I think this is the most impressive so far! The outside of the church look stunning then to go from 40 degree to the coolness of the church is breathtaking. The church is beautiful and has an amazing feel to it, it really does... More
