Some time around the mid 20th century the cathedral was extended so it displays an amalgam of two architectural styles and it succeeds fairly well. The newer part brings in more light and the effect is very comforting, welcoming and pleasing.More

The architecture is a sight to behold. Feel and looks like a grand cathedral and easily accessible if you are in the Perth CBD. They have a tour on offer but we missed it.

St Mary's Cathedral has been magnificently renovated. Previously a gloomy 20th century building it is now filled with light and warmth. All the elements of the historic cathedral have been retained and there is a wonderful connection between the main altar and the crypt below,...More

Thank you for visiting the Cathedral and for your wonderful review. Everyone is always welcome at the Cathedral; we do our best to balance the needs of those who wish to admire the "magnificently renovated" building and those who want quiet prayer and reflection.

A wonderful building standing grand at the tops of a hill in the middle of Victoria square. The modern extension and grounds has been cleverly blended which makes it unique. Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

Am so glad to have witnessed and participated in the celebration on a Sunday. A little clinical but charming at the same time. Unfortunately I did not have the opportunity to walk the grounds which did look promising.

A must-see in Perth CBD, the cathedral towers majestically in Victoria Sq up ahead while you're walking along Murray St from the train station. Even if you're not religious, it's worth seeing the old stone-carved skeleton of the preserved building next to its newer and...More
