More than just a beautiful and characterful building, this is a place of worship. My family attended Sunday mass and the excellent choir and cantor made us feel as if we were in the presence of angels. We were struck by the beauty of not only the building, but also its grounds. Well worth a visit.

A must see place for experiencing the majestic cathedral and say a little prayer. The mosaic flooring makes a perfect picture for a memorable experience. I made one as my e-X'mas Card :)

We managed to get inside this cathedral just before it closed at 5.30pm. You can get to this site by hopping on the free city circle tram. Well worth a visit to see inside.

The Cathedral was nice... But nothing mind blowing compared to cathedrals in Italy. It was worth a visit. Visited on a Sunday and there was service going on inside.

An architectural marvel. Almost missed visiting but grateful that I made it. Beautiful inside & out. Very peaceful. Only thing was I came from the back so missed out on the front. The cathedral is huge. Every corner there is something that catches your eye. Well cared for. I arrived just in time as soon after it was closed to... More

A gorgeous cathedral with beautiful grounds. The grounds have statues and information plaques, gardens and fountains. Lots of parking around and train station near by. Lots of other sites in the area too.

My first time here earlier today and perfect timing. Mass was to commence at 1 pm and we got there 10 minutes before. We were advised to ensure all pictures were taken before Mass commenced..... St. Patrick's Cathedral is the main Catholic Church in Melbourne and is an architectural marvel.

Nice exterior. Currently closed for renovations. Water feature close by with stagnant water with hundreds of mosquitos and lava growing.
