Churches Underground

We visited a couple of underground churches.  This one, The Catacomb Church, used to be an opal mine.

Behind the altar are two holes where the miners used to come down into the mine.

This next church is the Serbian church.  We were impressed by the intricate carvings above the altar and the scalloped sandstone ceiling which extended back for the length of the long room.

More carvings into the sandstone.

Tomorrow we head into the Northern Territory, aiming for Alice Springs.  We'll probably stop for a night somewhere around the South Australia/Northern Territory border, arriving in Alice on Sunday.  I'd be very surprised if we can connect to the internet prior to getting to Alice Springs, so we'll catch up with you when we can.
