Imagine a mixture of Truro cathedral and one from Picardy and you would not be far off the mark. This place is fascinating rather than being an architectural gem. I am told there is a good choir, but there are few choral services.

I had a wonderful visit to St John's Cathedral this week. The volunteer guides could not have been more helpful and the cathedral itself is magnificent. The stonework and windows are well worth a look.

Lovely church on Ann Street, you will be glad you visited to relax the mind and get out of the rat race. High ceilings with lovely stained glass (classic and modern) as well as lovely wood work make this a great place to contemplate while be refreshed in beauty.

During our visit it was nice to see that extensive restoration work was underway. There was still pleenty of the exterior to be viewed through the scaffolding. Well worth a visit.

Walked around the city to see this place around Dec 20. While it's a magnificent building, the looks were marred by a host of scaffoldings for restoration works.

St John's has undergone extensive refurbishment and is an outstanding piece of architecture. The stain glass window at the front entrance is wonderful and was designed by a Brisbane artist. The cathedral holds very good concerts although the acoustics are no always as good as they could be.

I may be a little bit biased because my husband and I were married here in 1989. It was beautiful then and is more so now after some completed renovations

While we can't compare to the amazing cathedrals of Europe, this is one of Australia's best efforts.

The renovations on the Cathedral are spectacular. It is worth the small walk from the city centre to see. Open Every Day.

Beautifully maintained building. Cool place to visit in summer yet invitingly warm in winter. Marble floors, dark wood features and a modern twist with the baptismal. Friendly and inviting.
