St. Barnabas Church, Norfolk Island

4.9
#1 of 9 in Historic Sites in Norfolk Island
Amidst a tranquil setting, the marble front of St. Barnabas Church glistens in the sun. Enter the massive dark timber to discover pews inlaid with mother-of-pearl shells and rose windows. Used by England’s missionary workers, the chapel was built using stone from ruins of the New Gaol. A small cemetery with intriguing headstones and a huge fig tree in the back further add to the heritage.
