But it is pleasing enough to stroll through a nice cathedral/temple/mosque etc and St Patricks in Melbourne is a nice enough example. It isn't as massive as many out there but it has the full panoply of external gargoyles (check for one that has the likeness of a former Victorian Premier), stained glass, reverent vibe and.... tourist shop.

We attended Mass on a Sunday in this grand cathedral and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The stained glass is as memorable as some we have seen in cathedrals in Europe. We were very impressed.

This is a good stop on a walking tour of Melbourne. Not too far from Captain Cooks or the Melbourne Museum. Set up for folks to come in and pay their respects. If you venture inside, be nice and donate to their worthy causes which is easily done by dropping a few good coins in the boxes by the main... More

The stain glass windows and doors were amazing, the inside was much bigger than I thought it would be. There were two ladies doing the flower arrangements for the next week, we had a conversation with one lady and she told us that most of flowers come from their own gardens, the arrangements were beautiful.

I loved this Cathedral. It is a lovely gothic style Cathedral. It was a very nice and serene place to be. The stained glass inside was also very beautiful. I actually sat down and said a small prayer too. The outside is of the Church is also awesome. If you get a chance please see this Cathedral you will not... More

Such an old gothic inspired cathedral. We went to sunday mass. The cantor was very good and while I am not catholic, enjoyed the service very much.

This church is gorgeous, very open (when it's not hosting a wedding, which is most Saturdays!), and massive - you will get the best viewpoint from the north side of Victoria parade on the Western corner - if I have my bearings right. When you enter from the south side you can go all the way to the back and... More
