We visited to light some candle for Christmas for our loved ones. The Cathedral was beautiful and had a lovely feel about it especially as it was Christmas time.

If you love old architecture and churches like I do, you will love this gem. It looks stunning from the outside, but wait till you see what's inside. It's huge, so many things to look at, one more beautiful than the next, attention to details, space, it's just fantastic. If I lived around Melbourne, I would go visit this church... More

We were amazed at the building spree that must have taken place in Australia when it was first settled. This is a fabulous building with nice features and a good organ which has been recently renovated. Easy access from the circle tram.

Every time I have visitors from overseas, I always bring them to St Patricks Cathedral. It is a beautiful structure. The best time to visit this place is in spring when all the flowers in the Cathedral gardens are in bloom.

A lovely yellow light pervades the stained glass windows and illuminates this cathedral. Stations of the cross in the transept, and an interesting icon in the choir.

As a non religious person visiting St Patrick's Cathedral I was mesmerised by the beauty of this Cathedral. It has the most amazing stained glass windows, interior architecture is stunning and sitting through a service was a chance just to sit and reflect in beautiful surroundings. The gardens surrounding the cathedral are beautiful and tranquil and contain many water features.... More

This is a worthwhile stop on a walk-about the city. A classic style of cathedral with beautiful wood and stained glass. The chapel stations are lovely and worth taking a moment to reflect and pray.
