The Fresco's in this Church will have you AMAZED from the moment you walk in. The Stain glass windows add to the appeal but you could spend hours in here checking out the paintings.

We visited this beautiful church on the way to lake entrance. The painting in the church is quite amazing. The alter is painted nicely. I am not sure who did the painting, but the work is Godly.

Not the kind of thing you'd expect to see in Bairnsdale. Intricate paintings over the walls and ceilings and at the front plenty of naked sinners descending into a fiery hell while circled by cherubs with oddly old looking faces - perhaps shepherding sinners does...More
