“A local Landmark”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

This is a country church that has seen much happen in the Bairnsdale area. The inside is a reflection of the faith of the early settlers

“Worth the look”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

Situated on the main road right next to the information centre, the church is easily found and worth a look at for all ages.

This Catholic Church was an eye opener for my 3 year old and myself. Although I am not catholic, it is easy to see the story line in the churches artwork.

“Interesting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Australia is not famous for its churches, especially for churches with murals. That said this was an interesting church to visit but I have to admit, the murals are nothing at all like the murals one will see in churches in Europe. Still, kinda nice to look at. Church is open early so was able to be in and out before 9am on a thursday morning.

“Pleasant Surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Amazing church! Such a surprise to find a church with frescos all over the walls & ceilings, in a little town - you almost feel like you're in a mini version of St Peter's Basilica in Rome. Definitely a must see if you plan a trip to or through Bairnsdale.
