If you enjoy cathedrals you will love this one, it is big and well taken care of. No fee to look around, unless you want to see the crypts.

Beautiful Catholic cathedral located across from Hyde Park. The crypt is worth a visit. The staff in the gift shop are friendly & helpful.

Beautiful. Serene. Time to sit and reflect. Free entrance but $5.00 for entrance to the crypt which is well worth the money and helping the upkeep. Do visit and marvel in old fashioned beauty.

Stopped for Sunday minding mass The cathedral is large and just beautiful. The men's choir during the service was awesome and the peaceful surroundings was the best way to start my day.

So, I'm one of those that thinks no city trip is complete without a short jaunt to the resident cathedral. Situated near to the most beautiful gardens and commanding a key position near to the harbour St Mary's beckoned us in to stop and breathe. I'd recommend it if you're a bit like me - although you don't need to... More

THE Cathedral of Sydney. Simply charming and peaceful. The right place to stop for a time of reflection and to admire one of the best churches I've ever seen.
