Beautiful architecture both exterior and interior. The stained glass work alone is worthy of a visit.

St Pat's is LARGE. You get a sense of how impressive the building must have been for working-class people attending mass in the early years. The friend I was with and I have both been to many cathedrals all over the world so were not surprised by the traditional design of the interior, with its chapels to one side. The... More

St.Patrick's Cathedral is a beautiful old Church in the heart of Melbourne. It is Serene inside and very impressive outside. Whether you are religious or not it is a MUST visit when in Melbourne.

The plaque about drinking the water would make sure you never got thirsty again made my day when a couple steps later, you'd realise the water is recycled only to notice a couple of people had already took sips of the water. Definitely made my day. The cathedral itself is a great piece of architecture.

The cathedral is an oasis in bustling Melbourne. Whether you are religious, or just appreciate interesting architecture, a spot of serenity, or walking through beautifully landscaped grounds, you should visit St. Patrick's. It's a short walk from Fitzroy Park, Parliament and the old Treasury museum.

It was amazing to pop into St Paul's Cathedral in the middle of the busy city to be met with such peace. The architecture was extremely impressive and the history very interesting.

Drop in to St Patrick's Cathedral one cold Friday. The interior was beautiful, quiet, serene and the windows were magnificent. It was late afternoon and the sun that shone like gold onto the side windows were marvelous view. My partner and I kneel on the pew and with our heads bowed and eyes closed, we said our prayers and give... More

Always love to visit Cathedrals in different places. This one is okay but not the best Cathedral I have ever visited.
