We visited the St Mary's Cathedral on a Sunday afternoon. When you step into this magnificent cathedral, suddenly you are away from the noisy city, it is so peaceful inside. It is a remarkable building done in sandstones with beautiful glass windows. Inside is impressive with very high decorated ceilings. This is a must see if you are around the... More

Attended the 10.30 am Solemn Choral Sunday Mass. Amazing architecture with amazing choir. It was a full choir on that day and it was like watching a free performance. The hymns similar to Gregorian chant was sung by the choir consisting of all men. So even if you are not a Catholic, it is nice just to sit back and... More

It's a beautiful old-fashioned cathedral and it works as a grand landmark for tourism. I'm not catholic but I had the opportunity of presencing a mass and the cathedral has good acoustics and it's totally beautiful inside. There are crypts beneath it that you can pay $5 to visit but they're quite disappointing. It's a huge hall with great written... More

Visited St Marys Cathedral in the centre of Sydney. There is a long underground walkway which you can use to get to the cathedral from the Domain Car Park.

It is a beautiful gothic-style Catholic Cathedral dedicated to Saint Mary, the patroness of Australia. The architecture is magnificent inside and out, with pointed and arched exterior windows, richly decorated doors, high ceilings, a pipe organ and stained glass windows. It is well worth a visit, especially on a sunny day when natural light illuminates the church and creates a... More

During christmas days, the cathedral was lit with slideshows and music, so we really like it and it was an enjoyable evening in my stay. I found it beautiful and really worth the visit.

We were lucky just as we thought of just visiting the Cathedral for some photos, we were blessed to be able to attend their weekday mass. The building is just a pure beauty.

Came here on a night stroll, we were keen to check out inside but it was closed (opening hours are 8.30am to 5pm). The cathedral looked so nice at night with all the lights on so it was great to see that :)
