St John's is a towering cathedral that was just a few minutes walk form my hotel. Very beautiful stained glass windows which were very unique from many I have seen in other locations. A nice site to visit if you are nearby.

Not often you see the Anglicans out do the Catholics. They do in Brisbane. First of all they have the higher ground, secondly this one out does the other in size and beauty. I know it isn't a competition but is worthy of a look.

I noticed this huge cathedral during my walk along Ann Street when I was looking for a catholic church in Brisbane. The lady who warmly greeted me gave me a brochure about the Cathedral. She explained that it is an Anglican Cathedral built in 3 stages; made of sandstone from areas near Brisbane. This Cathedral reminded me of huge, beautiful... More

Such a fascinating cathedral - A lot of facts about the church. It was built in 2009, some of the carvings were designed by school girls. The hallway and stained glass window is such a beauty. A lot of photographer's shot to be taken. I love the hallway

Such a fascinating cathedral - it was built in three stages and only just finished in 2009. There are tons of neat little facts about the church, such as some of the carvings being designed by schoolgirls. They have some fantastic stained glass windows as well - it's definitely worth a visit. The woman manning the "information desk" (if you... More

I attended a most beautiful concert at St. John's Anglican Cathedral in Brisbane last week. It was held over 2 nights. I would recommend it to others, and believe it is an annual event. Worth making a note of it and making a point of attending in December 2015. Lighting in the Cathedral was breath taking, and the voices of... More

Just lovely, a landmark in Brisbane, if you like old churches have a look inside, very nice. It's been renovated - I think it's worth checking out if you are in the city.

English visitors may very well think that they recognise the building as it is by the same architect as Truro Cathedral. It os rarely visited by tour groups, which is a shame, as it is delightful inside. The staff on duty are very welcoming, and is you happen to be there at a service time do stay: both the choir...

Renowned Brisbane landmark where music plays a significant part in the life of St John's Cathedral, as in any great cathedral. At the centre is the Cathedral Choir – a traditional cathedral choir of men and boys in which the boys receive a scholarship to study at the Anglican Church Grammar School . The building is inviting so just step... More
