Our catholic cathedral in the centre of the CBD where you can get away from the busy city and spend reflective time with God. It is very popular for the catholic community who have a city residence. being opposite a major hospital 'Royal Perth' it is very convenient for people who have loved ones who are in hospital.

Small but interesting. Unless cathedrals are you thing the visit won't take long. Some interesting features. Location means it is easy to visit while looking at other sites near the city centre.

St Mary's Church sits next to the Royal Perth Hospital, on CAT Bus (Red) Stop #26. Outside of this huge church is magnificent, gorgeous facade, unforunately I did not have time to stop to go inside, but I would assume if the outside is this nice, I can only imagine the decour inside. Worth a look!

St Mary's Cathedral is a great demonstration of how old can meet new. The Cathedral is has been altered to extend its size and architecturally this has been done well. It was very peaceful.

After major renovations completed sometime ago, this church is a great refuge of peace and reflection.

It has been a couple of years since the changes to this beautiful cathedral finally completing it. it stands opposite Royal Perth Hospital so it is best you walk up from the city and it is a lovely walk amongst the big tress. Wheelchairs are fine along this walk as well. The cathedral misses some of the old charm it... More

A beautiful blend of 150 years ago and today The layout of the cathedral is very well done It is also very easy to get to and very central The acoustic is very good and the gardens outside are very well kept and underneath the criped tells the history of the church and Perth Western Australia
