The small chapel beside St Stephen's Cathedral is a beautifully quiet spot for reflection. Especially down the front behind the large camphor laurel screens alongside the huge carving of St Mary MacKillop. Light a candle, say a quiet prayer or reflect on life. A wonderful way to get some perspective into your day.

I went to Christmas Eve cermon at it was really really nice with the boys choir especially, packed with people I would say close to 500 people squeezed in that night. The little manger at the fron too was so well put together.

Wonderful old church in the hart of the city--great place to stop in on to step back from all of your outside worries and take a few moments to think.

I love this church. Its the church we go to for Christmas mass, it is where my son was christen. I love the smell of this church. The new carpark nearby has been handy. The nuns who runs the back office are lovely. Nice grounds.

this beautiful Catholic cathedral is nestled amid the busy streets of Brisbane. So peaceful and quiet inside both the chapels. The older, smaller chapel is lovely. The slightly newer large cathedral is stunning inside but the outside is even better. A must see in Brisbane.

Beautiful building that has been given a modern touch. The sound in the building is amazing. Its a little cold as marble floors can be in winter.

The Sculpture of Sister Mary McKillop, Australia's only confirmed Saint is worthy of the visit irrespective of religion. An amazing creation.

This is a beautiful chapel attached to St Stephen's Cathedral. Lots of history, and a good place to spiritually relax and get away from the hustle outside.

The stones of St Stephen’s Cathedral are silent witnesses to the joy and hope, the grief and anguish of generations of Catholic families. A joy to visit any time , one does not need to be Catholic to enjoy this cathedral
