This church is just outside of Melbourne's large CBD and near to a couple of very large parks. The three spires are a landmark in a very nice part of the city. Inside is just as impressive with some wonderful stain-glass windows. This building is...More

It's another cathedral with nice yard and nice stained-glass windows. Much more or less as those cathedrals in Italy. Impressive nevertheless.

Well worth a visit. I wanted to walk to the Cathedral, but the tourism office considered it very far way from Flinders street station. However, I eventually walked around the CBD and found myself only three blocks away from the Cathedral. The CBD is quite...More

Is the church open to visitors outside of the usual mass time? Are we allowed to enter the church to pray and what time do they close daily?

Yes, you can enter when there are no services. It would be best to contact the Cathedral to ask opening hours.

Michelle K. I did not hear any bells midweek during my visit, but other reviewers indicate they are rung to call parishioners to Mass, and for special occasions (weddings). P.S. do not miss Cook's Cottage... More
