The Catacomb Church

Category Agriculture, Forestry & Fishing

Originally built in 1977 this unique church is cut out of the sandstone in the shape of a cross adorned in a simple and natural way befitting the outback opal fields - cross, lectern, and communion table fashioned from local mulga wood and an old miner's winch.
