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

We visited the church, and were warmly greeted by the parishioners and staff. They were friendly and welcoming. Amazing church. Definitely worth the visit.

to see an underground church. Any church would always welcome a donation. Here you can be an indian giver. U can take back magnets of the attractions of Coober Pedy.

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 experience of entering an underground church. The minister and his wife were lovely. The minister even got us to pose for a photo which he took lying on the floor, very funny.
