This is a lovely church to sit in and gather your thoughts - so peaceful. It is a lovely building away from the hustle of the city. The gardens are lovely too.

Like a little oasis in the centre of the city! Very interesting. A great place to visit if you have about 30 minutes spare and need a quiet, cool place to wander around.

Walked for miles looking for this cathedral which was definitely worth a visit. Small grounds but the cathedral inside is much larger than it appears on the outside. A peaceful hour spent looking round.

This cathedral is well worth a visit. It has wonderful soaring ceilings, beautiful stained glass windows and alter area. The gardens have some lovely water features.

Even if you aren't a religious person the décor, artwork and building is beautiful. It is worth the few minutes to look at it.

You are free to roam about inside and see the elaborate decor of the church. It was cool and quiet inside, and well worth a free wonder around if you're around Flinders Street and Federation Square.

The architecture of the exterior is just a fraction of the beauty on the interior. View the little chapels around the cathedral to see the intricate details. Definitely the most beautiful cathedral in Melbourne.

Religious or not, this is a beautiful church and should be a stopping point for anyone in Melbourne. The stained glass window inside is magnificent. The church is good for a stroll through and is close to many other attractions (Parliament House, Fitzroy Gardens), so it's easy to swing by on the way to other places on your to-do list... More
