This is a beautiful building! I did not expect anything like this in rural Australia. Architecture and windows are both amazing!

A marvel that must be seen. Such amazing architecture. Absolutely breathtakingly beautiful inside. Need at least half an hour to look around, inside and out.

Visiting Bendigo you really need to look inside the Sacred Heart Cathedral as it is awe inspiring. Beautiful stained glass, and so much more to see inside.
