St Finbarrs Opal Altar

Home to one of Quilpie Shire’s most iconic attractions, St Finbarr’s Church rests on the foundations of an intriguing history. In 1976, the Priest at the time, Father John Ryan, decided to compliment the opal mining background of the area by commissioning local miner, Des Burton. This resulted in St Finbarrs Open Altar, lectern and baptismal font.
