St Pats is great but don't talk too loud, you will upset the worshippers. It's built out of Melbourne bluestone and has lasted far better than St Paul's, the Anglican cathedral, which was build of more expensive, but less durable, sandstone. St Pats is a paean to Melbourne's Irish community. It also houses the tomb of Archbishop Daniel Mannix, probably... More

See if you can spot the gargoyle depicting Geoff Kennet, former premier of the state and mad Hawthorn fan. Check for times of services so you can avoid them if you just want to look around.

This magnificent building is iconic for Melbourne and probably one of the best architectural gems in the city. As well as that it has a holy feel to it and you could spend many comfortable hours in contemplation there. A must to visit when you are in Melbourne.

Stained glass, towers, gloomy corners, places of rest, places of worship, peace and tranquility. This Cathedral has all that you want to find if looking for an architectural venue or a place of worship

My wife and I have travelled quite extensively and always enjoy visiting cathedrals and old churches. St Patrick's is a delight and Melbourne has a right to feel proud of an icon. The architecture never ceases to amaze me.

This is a beautiful cathedral in the heart of the city. It is very interesting to read all the plaques on the walls and the fell the relatively new history of this lovely building. We were lucky enough to visit when it was decorated with flowers for a wedding and the organist was practicing. Well worth a visit.
