ST. LUKE'S CHURCH HALL
Located next to the Church, is the Church Hall which is registered with the National Trust of Queensland.
I have always admired the distinctive design of this 100 year old Hall. The roof-top ventilators topped with crosses are patented and which are said to be reminiscent of Byzantine onion cupolas.
We were able to go inside, as they were holding a spinning & weaving exhibition, for the Carnival of Flowers.
