Just like St Stephens Catholic Cathedral, St John's Anglican cathedral is a beautiful piece of architecture. You marvel at the intricate design and the beautiful structure. It evokes a sense of calmness, surrounded by the hustle and bustle of the CBD, what a contrast!

A lovely cool spot on a hot day to rest and enjoy the wonderful craftsmanship. A brilliant building no matter what your spiritual beliefs.

I viewed this from the outside only. The architecture is very pretty and draws one to the building. Good location.

we had heard about all the restoration work - loved the new stained glass windows and the stonework, particularly in the front entrance ceiling.

The interior of the church is beautiful, in particular with the amazingly vibrant stainglass windows. The church is a must see.

We stumbled upon this church on our first walk into Brisbane. It is gorgeous and a beautiful piece of history that tells a story through its stained glass windows. We were welcomed in and briefly told the history of the church by one of the volunteers. Definitely worth popping in to explore.

Drove past earlier today on the way to my hotel and absolutely had to go back for a look. Absolutely beautiful architecture and stunning church. Was extremely lucky to have watched the Sheldon College 'Songs of Sanctuary' tonight who created a beautiful harmony and very moving sound. Lovely experience!!

We walked by this beautiful building and admired it from the outside. If you have the time, sounds like going inside is worth a visit. We stumbled upon it as we headed for another city sight.

Neo gothic sandstone church. Take your time to walk slowly through. It took almost one hundred years to buitt. All by public donations. Definitely worth to visit
