We had a wander around this church and it is beautiful. Well worth a visit and reminded us of churches back in England.

I couldn't help but be drawn into the gates of this cathedral. The gardens are enchanting. The architecture and stonework amazing. It makes me wonder if Australia today, has trades people who can hand craft such amazing work.

An absolute must to see when in Melbourne as it is inspiring to stand inside the Cathedral and just absorb the atmosphere

This cathedral is so beautiful inside. We attended Christmas Eve mass and it was such a wonderful experience. The acoustics are amazing! This place is a gift to the eyes, ears and soul.

A very large an imposing place of worship. Once inside you could quite easily think you were in an Anglican cathedral in the U.K. The staff were very knowledgable. A must see for those who like visiting places of worship.

Closed on 27 December, which was a public holiday. May apply to other public holidays. Disappointing, and not flagged up anywhere. But look out for a lively little garden at the City Circle tram stop for the cathedral.
