You could sit and see couples get married and get lovely photos taken around the church. Lovely to hear the choir practicing.

Located at Victoria Square and opposite The Royal Perth Hospital, the Cathderal is newly renovated with high ceilings. I attend the cathedral every sunday and one has to act with reverence as it is a sacred space
