My wife and I have travelled quite extensively and always enjoy visiting cathedrals and old churches. St Patrick's is a delight and Melbourne has a right to feel proud of an icon. The architecture never ceases to amaze me.

This is a beautiful cathedral in the heart of the city. It is very interesting to read all the plaques on the walls and the fell the relatively new history of this lovely building. We were lucky enough to visit when it was decorated with flowers for a wedding and the organist was practicing. Well worth a visit.

This is the tallest and largest cathedral in Australia. Take your time when visiting. Every minute spent is worth the effort.

We have traveled all over the world and this Cathedral is stunning. Not only is the interior beautiful, but the grounds are lovely as well.

Enter a door into quietness. Let your thoughts be stilled as you apprehend the solemnity and majesty gently suffusing this hallowed place. Reflect beneath an ever so lofty, vaulted ceiling, where our deepest aspirations dare to look upward to that highest point from which we were created. Rest here awhile. Breathe holy air. Receive loves forgiveness that can never be... More

A Cathedral to rival Europe's best, well worth a visit to see the architecture and experience 'the vibe'.Also close to Mary McKillop museum and other great East Melbourne attractions.

I haven't been inside a building like this since I left the UK. Wonderfully peaceful, ambient and full of history.
