With this, one needs to know the history behind it. No, it is NOT the Sisteen Chapel, but it is one poor, hungry and yet inspired person's version of it. So much work.

What an amazing church for a country town. The stained glass windows and painted ceiling is superb. Many cherubs larking about.

A must to visit in Bairnsdale. Such a beautiful old church and you will get a sore neck gazing at the ceiling. We visited during an Easter Service so the church was full

This old church seems like you just step back in time, the paintings on the ceilings and walls take you back to another time

Magnificent Church, try and go when the guide is on duty. Tell your friends and relatives about your visit.

I find it difficult to review a church because they're all beautiful for being places of worshipping God, so will stick with the physical aspects only! St.Mary's cathedral is well worth a visit obviously for the intricate artwork. It's nothing like you would find anywhere...More

This church was hand painted by an Italian migrant in the 1930's. Some people liken to to the Sistine Chapel in Rome. It is visited by over 100000 people each year.
