A church with pearls!

The interior of this church is amazing! Never seen so much pearl shell in one place! Only drawback is toilet facilities are not great.

Remarkable and full of history. Its one thing to see this on T.V. but in real life it is amazing. The road is unsealed and very rough for approximately 90km. We left the van in Broome and did the day trip. A small donation of $5 is asked for and postcards can also be purchased all by an honour system.... More

After reading Di Morrisey's "Tears of the Moon', just had to visit this church to view the mother of pearl alter and all the other pearl shells within the church. It was really beautiful. We travelled to Cape Levique on one of Kimberley Wild Adventure tours and this was part of the tour. Well worth the visit even more so... More

A well preserved church with real history. The alter of oyster shells is something never seen in other churches. The building is well looked after and preserved. A real gem

Wow what a work of pioneering dedication and it is so inspirational.. the use of local natural products like shells to construct and decorate the church is truly remarkable and leaves one in awe .. well worth the lengthy trip and the rough roads

If you have a couple of hours to spare while visiting Broome, this is a great place to visit. The Sacred Heart Church is beautiful and visitors will not be disappointed. Well worth the drive out of Broome, even if you are not religious, the shell alter is amazing.

Amazing church with so much interesting history, the mother of Pearl alter is mind blowing, the road to Beagle Bay can be a bit rough at times suggest a 4wd to get there, although it can be done in a conventional car.

We saw the Sacred Heart Church at Beagle Bay whilst on a tour with Roger Chomley. The inside of the church is something to see. The altar is decorated with pearl shells. I would make the trip to Beagle Bay just to see the church again.

Be prepared for a rough ride into Beagle Bay - depending on how long it's been since it was graded, but the Church is worth the journey. Decorations in the Church are beautiful, with lots of mother of pearl There is a printed brochure describing the history and the structure of the building. There is no entrance fee, but donations...
