In every city tour I go to, whether local or international, it wouldn't be completed if you can't drop by any church or Cathedral. The place is so serene and peaceful. The church is a bit old and boosts of simple architectural designs yet there...More

Well worth a visit with tour staff available free of charge. What makes a cathedral seperate from a church it has a chair next to the alter.

I was headed to Woolworths (opposite this church) when I espied this beautiful building. I'd heard/read about it, but did not realise it was in the centre of the city - a pleasant surprise.

Our visit was very enjoyable, it is a beautiful Cathedral and it felt really good roaming through it, they don't build them like that anymore and it is well worth a visit while you are in Brisbane.

You get a sense of a city's history by visiting its churches. I am catholic so used this to visit for religious reasons but its worth a visit on a hot day to contemplate the architecture.

Gorgeous placed to go if you are into your religion and/or archetechture. The stained glass is wonderful and plenty of electric fans inside to keep you cool.
