Refreshing to see ancient architecture from the 1800s. All wooden with plaques of former colonial managers. Currently undergoing maintenance, nice sight seeing while you're in the CBD.

Although under construction, the wooden cathedral has gravitas and its awe-inspiring architectural presence is completely captivating. Attending a service is a must but even if you cannot, please leave a goodwill donation to support the renovation.

Under construction when we visited, but it is an amazing architectural feat, I think. A church service was just starting when we arrive so we stayed with the very friendly congregation while marveling at the beautiful structure.

Beautiful church, an amazing piece of architecture. Do go inside as not what you'd expect from outside. Currently having much needed renovation. Lovely, friendly lady greeted us at entrance & gave us a short history of the place. Large congregation on a Sunday so great to walk passed & hear the singing.

There is restoration work being done on the outside of the building but don't let that deter you from going inside. The wood ceilings are beautiful and the stained glass is worth a stop.

From the outside the building is in desperate need of restoration but it has commenced on one side, and will look fantastic once completed. Inside it appears to be in great shape and is really beautiful and well worth a short visit and to make a donation to assist with the restoration. Friendly people will also provide a history leaflet... More

The oldest and largest wooden structure. Very interesting if for nothing else but the historical factor. Not really much to see, interesting.

This Anglican (Episcopal) cathedral was undergoing some renovation from outside, but the doors were open to the public. It is a spacious beautiful building where visitors are allowed to walk around and take photos. The attendant at the entrance was happy to receive guests; she gave me a pamphlet, which described all aspects of the church. She said that there... More

It is currently undergoing a $2 million refurbishment, and thus not looking at its finest, but the magnificent wooden building is a hallmark of Georgetown. It is a truly magnificent building, and the many plaques on the wall tell a tale of daring, disease and faith among the many early settlers; a "white" history, to be sure, but an important... More
