Really a breathtaking sight and a beauty,don't miss visiting this place ever.The hop on hop off bus passes by this church,so you have to get off the bus to see this church. This church is at the far end of Melbourne town compared to St.Pauls cathedral.Overall both churches are really impressive!!

Amazing mix of architecture and endless stain glass windows. The tiled flooring is beautifully restored and worth seeing too..quite an impressive collection of gifts of China and silverware on display from cathedrals in the UK too.

Most beautiful Cathedral to visit it is well worth looking at inside and out. The architecture is incredible and if you are religious a most beautiful place to pray.

I visited the cathedral with Irish friends for mass at Christmas Eve. It's an large impressive building and was packed to the limit for mass. It's a tradition of some to go for the Christmas mass, which is the one time of year many will enter a church apart from weddings and funerals. It was heartening to see a wide... More

St Pats has been the cornerstone of Victoria's Catholic flock since the late 19th Century. Not festooned with the golden icons of many European cathedrals, it is nevertheless a fascinating mixture of the English & French construction styles that will appeal to the curiosity of students of church architecture. And a cool place to escape the blistering heat of a... More

It is a classic yet gorgeous church. A must visit place if you are around Melbourne, easy to access with public transport. If you are planning to attend the mass, check the mass timetable first.

This Cathedral is simply amazing. The detail, architecture and maintenance on this amazing building is gorgeous. We spent a good 1 hour walking around and taking it all in, reading on the history from the beginning of construction to it's completion. There were no problems taking photo's within the Cathedral. As we were entering, a wedding party was coming out.... More
