The Green Cathedral

Location:Booti Booti National Park, Tiona, NSW, 2428

This majestic open-air sanctuary is a special feature of the Great Lakes area.

A beautifully unique place with rough timbered pews and wooden lectern, situated under a canopy of rainforest, on the shores of the Wallis Lake.

This al-fresco cathedral is regulalry used for weddings, worship, blessing of children, baptism and funeral services.

The Green Cathedral was constructed for public worship and private devotion back in 1922 by the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints.

After months of transporting building materials by barge from Tuncurry to Tiona, construction of the Green Cathedral was complete and the first church reunion was held in December 1922. In attendance were over 250 worshippers.

Monday, 2nd December 1957 saw devastation rip through Tiona. Flames engulfed the area from all angles, making it seem impossible to save the historic grounds. Just after midnight the all clear was given. The fire was out. Much to everyone’s amazement, the Green Cathedral was untouched and all the buildings were saved!

The Green Cathedral is located south of Forster along The Lakes Way at Tiona.
