The Cathedral is open most of the time and really does welcome the tourist and worshiper. The Qld sandstone is reminiscent of a wonderful bygone past with the colours and textures to match.

This cathedral was recently finished. The sunlight as it comes through the many stain glass windows is a surreal experience. It's a beautiful building to see and the architecture a wonder to behold. Get there while the sun is shining through the glass to experience the spectacular stain glass effects.

This is a beautiful church and between August to October you are sure to see a wedding in the afternoon. The church remains open to the public regardless if there is a wedding or not.

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.

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.
