Such a lovely building,inside and out. This should be a must see n any walking tour of Melbourne. I was'nt so impressed with the large statue of Cardinal Mannix out front,as I believe he was a quite controversial and unloved figure. Probably a good thing he's outside weathering the elements.

My Wife and i were already at the Cathedral when the Tour came through! The travelers on the Tour said they were rushed and wanted more time there. But we had a excellent time looking through the Cathedral very Beautiful, and a lovely place to go and clear the Mind!... Cheers winston.

This is a must see for a visit in Melbourne. The architecture is spectacular and has little alcoves for quite prayer around the back of the main altar. A really special feeling in this Cathedral.

St Patrick's Cathedral is Melbourne's most beautiful and dignified church. It is large and regal with a distinguished history and walking through the church there is a quiet and peaceful atmosphere . We forgot how lovely this cathedral is !!!!!!!!!

It's a great chance to see a more recent example of cathedral architecture as well as understand the importance of the 20th Century wars and the impact they had on this community and the ANZAC soldiers who served. The great highlight for me was being present... More

Melbourne's finest Cathedral with a magnificent history. Stroll around quietly and enjoy. There are beautiful so crafted windows and long sweeping aisle.
