I have been in many cathedrals in England and Europe and St. Patrick's in Melbourne is on equal footing with many of them, in my opinion it is quite awe inspiring, I took my fifteen year old granddaughter to visit there (her first time in a cathedral) she was stunned by its atmosphere and beauty, I do not have a...

St. Pat's is an impressive Cathedral. The architecture is amazing, and once inside you can't help but be over awed at the spectacular grandeur of the Cathedral. Well worth the visit. I would allow about 45 minutes to view the inside & the grounds of the Cathedral - both stunning
