This a very amazing church in a very remote area. The church has many mother of pearl shells built into it which makes it a real feature

Not too over the top as Catholic churches go with not toomany bleeding images of Christ. The mother of pearl inlay decoration around the church and the altar show that this community are coast dwellers. Worth a look if you are in the area and are prepared to put $5 into the box to help with upkeep.

Beautiful church, amazing decorations of mother of pearl. Just off the Cape Leveque Road and well worth the drive. The whole township is calm and serene and just the right distance from Broome to stop for a break. Don't miss the church.

Hard to imagine that this church was built by POWs. Very unique and in keeping with churches of long ago.

The interior inlaid with thousands of pearl shells, whole and in pieces, shines just as much as the white exterior.
