The church is right next to the visitor centre so a great place to stop and stretch the legs. The paintings (Frescoes) on the inside are quite exquisite. Highly recommended for older travellers passing through.

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
