Church hits the road in journey to new home

Last Friday afternoon, the wheels were in motion for one of the Dubbo region's oldest churches in central-western NSW, with more than 100 years of history being transported to a new home at Dundullimal Homestead, reports The Daily Liberal.

Onlookers saw the peculiar sight of the old Timbrebongie church being trucked down Old Dubbo Road. Once at Dundullimal Homestead several workers in high visibility shirts directed the large load into the marked out area for the church surrounded by construction fencing.

It was the fifth time the old Timbrebongie church has been moved in its long history. The church is believed to have been built in the 1870s and has ties to Saint Mary MacKillop given it is thought to be the original Timbrebongie Roman Catholic Church which was owned for 70 years by Duncan MacKillop, the uncle of Australia's only saint.

The church will be used for wedding celebrations, naming ceremonies, renewal of wedding vows and funerals.
