St. Patrick's is a gorgeous Cathedral filled with great stained glass and serene solemnity. It's a nice stroll through a park to get there.

Beautiful, ornate church inside and out. We visited on several occasions, the first we were treated to the ringing of the bells. The church gift shop is on grounds but in a separate building. Located short 2 minute walk from Parliament House/TreasuryGardens.

St Patrick's Cathedral is on the edge of the Melbourne CBD, but has stunning architecture. There was some impressive bell ringng around 10:00am daily. Worth a quick visit.

A stunning piece of architecture that is well worth the look for that reason alone. Right in the heart of Melbourne, step inside if you want to escape the hustle and bustle, and feel the serenity and reverence.

I have spent time in Cathederals many times and this one is up with the best. Words do not describe the feeling but you will know when you have experienced it.

It's a shame that there were no Mass times advertised outside the Cathedral but it's a lovely building
