Beautiful church in the heart of Bendigo. I was there during the week so no service, but was amazing to walk around the grounds and explore the church. I had a sing in the cathedral and it has some seriously nice acoustics. They light up the outside at night too.

This is a beautiful building in a great position. It is an easy walk from the centre of town and well worth a visit.

Magnificent architecture and sculpting. Inside is the story of the churches and how it began in Bendigo.

You will certainly find your peace in this place. We had a very nice gentleman who gave us a short guide around this Cathedral. The architectural layout is mind blowing and its ambience so mighty and majestic. It is definitely on my must-return- list.

When you're in Bendigo- this church is the best attraction in the city. The architectural design is magnifescent. There's 2 masses every Sunday 8:30 and 11am. I always loved to attend the 11am mass due to the solemnity of the choir. It's worth a visit. I am always proud to take my visitors in here.

Open access and set back from the road on two sides, so photography outside and in is pretty good. Go up the hill from it in the morning at first light to get great light on the stone, but in winter the sun is behind the side that has the lovely park.

Beautiful Gothic cathedral in the center of Bendigo. Fantastic opportunity for some wonderful photos. For the full experience 11am mass on Sunday mornings are well worth it with a full choir accompanied by the pipe organ to top off the experience.
