AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'It's not what you expect to find in the desert: a rustic sandstone church, complete with picturesque spire, rural gothic in style, incongruous and quaint in the flat, arid landscape. The church, with its picture-book statue of Jesus out front, is the most distinct and unlikely landmark in Balgo, a small indigenous community deep in the heart of Western Australia's Great Sandy Desert, just south of the Wolf Creek Crater.'
