Visited this hidden gem while on business. The church is a beautiful reflection of its community and land. The seashells in the church make it unique and memorable while the steeple and white plaster outside ensure it is a landmark on the landscape. Beagle Bay...More

This church, and the community it stands in, was one of the highlights on our tour to Cape Leveque. The intricacies of the mother of pearl adorning every surface were remarkable

This place is lovely. The amount of work put in to hand carve all of those shells inside is astounding.

A beautiful little church with a unique mother of pearl altar. If traveling that direction well worth the visit. Drop into the community centre store - coffe's pretty reasonable

I knew there was a pearl shell altar, I knew it would be unique. However I wasn't prepared for how beautiful and detailed the pearl shell artwork would be. Definitely worth a visit. I hope this place gets maintained well into the future.

A must see, if able, to appreciate the many many hours that would have taken to create the beautiful Mother of Pearl interior of this church

We visited Beagle Bay settlement, the Sacred Heart Church was very well maintained, clean and spotless. Being an retired engineer, I appreciate the construction of the church. It was of a very high standard even with today’s technology. Well worth a visit.
