My father is a big fan of Pearson, who was the original architect of the cathedral. We're from the UK, so this is somewhere my father had never been, but told me I should look at.

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. The only negative aspect is that they are in the process of replacing the beautiful old pews with 'architectually designed chairs' and while they might be... More

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.

With a day to spare in Brisbane we decided to wander around the old buildings, this is a beautiful church within walking distance of the mall in Brisbane. 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
