Beautiful, and awe inspiring. Much rich history in this cathedral. Went in just for the heck of it, and was glad we did. Worth a visit when in the CBD. See Julian for a great tour experience.

We had our wedding at this cathedral and it was amazing. We captured incredible pictures with the sunlight streaming through the restored stain glass windows and the gothic style architecture provided the perfect backdrop.

Fairly central on Ann Street, impressive architecture and supremely serene. Simply enjoyed the peace and the time to reflect on the meaning of life!

Maria V you sound like weirdo. As if anyone would have treated you like that. Everyone there is beautiful and so is the church. Your either a liar or crazy.

When you get tired of shopping their are quite a few old buildings very close to the CBD in Brisbane. My daughter visited the Court House (located along the Pier) first and... More
