This place is seriously the most beautiful place to look at, we stood for ages just noticing everything on just the outside! The little statues, the beautiful bricks, the giant towers. It really is such an amazing place and I can only imagine how great it was when it was built.

It takes you back straight to your childhood! Im not religious, but this place is a very good place for relaxing. Choose a sunny day to visit as outside light makes marvellous scene through colourful windows right on top of entrance. Do not miss it!

Reminded me of the beautiful cathedrals I visited in Europe! It was interesting visiting this one after seeing St. Patricks Cathedral in Ireland.

The church is a beautiful old Roman Catholic Church. We were very nicely greeted at the entrance and reached there just in time for the 1PM mass which we then decided to attend. It was a really nice service as well.

Beautiful cathedral with wonderful stained glass windows throughout. We visited in winter, so the gardens were not in bloom, but we enjoyed the tranquil water features while strolling about. When looking up outside, you can see the gargoyles along the roof.

Just loved the architecture and beautiful interior. Definitely worth a visit.....a beautiful old Catholic cathedral. Fantastic to look at outside and in, make sure you walk right to the back of the church where there are some nice little chapel areas....easy walking distance in the city centre.

This is a landmark building in Melbourne and the senior cathedral of the Roman Catholic Church in Victoria. The architecture is going to interest people who like the Gothic revival style and the fascinating bluestone and sandstone used in the building. The Cathedral took very long time to complete and it was only on the eve of World War II... More
