It's such a large cathedral, yet inside is just exquisite. It's so tranquil amidst the hustle and bustle of the city! The architecture is just breath-taking, very sacred. I would recommend to drop-in if you have the time and are in the area.

City is always buzzing with so much people and aactivities that one would think that there is no place for peace and quiet. Come to St. Mary's Cathedral in Sydney.

This is a very large impressive cathedral right next to one end of Hyde park. Walking inside and seeing the stain glass windows and architecture is very nice. We were there on a Friday afternoon and heard someone practicing on the pipe organ and that was very nice. They don't allow any pictures of the inside. We were there late... More

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 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.
