St Mary's is an oasis in the heart of a crazy city. The old sandstone arcchitecture creates the most wonder acoustics so if there is a performance of sacred musicthen that would be a absolute must do!

This church is absolutely stunning and well worth the visit, The architecture of the building is just beautiful and the history that comes with the church is worth following up.

This is a lovely piece of architecture. It is on the edge of the Sydney CBD and thus has a commanding spot as the land falls away towards the Kings Cross end of town. It stands proudly in an uncluttered way and it is free to pop in and have a look about. There is a small gift shop there... More

It is the most beautiful church I have seen in my life so far! If you are a catholic, you must attend the mass because it was just an incredible experience.

We attended mass at the cathedral, where they use the new English translations. It took a century of toil by workers and financial sacrifice by parishioners to build and pay for this edifice. Photographers: there are many potential shots available using the full range of the zoom lens.

This is a truly beautiful building that has recently had some restoration work done. For photo opportunities it's best to stand across the road in Hyde Park to get it all in frame (I've been approached by many tourists to take their photo's here). If you are looking for some cheap things to do in Sydney you can't go wrong... More
