Stunning architecture

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.

The church sat on a high spot above the town. It was large and well cared for. We first saw the church from the tram and decided to visit it after we got off the tram, we met a volunteer guide who told us some of the history. Worth a look if you are in the area.

We have been coming to this Cathedral for years, but it took a recent visit with friends to properly realise the beauty of this place with fresh eyes! It is refreshing to walk in from a busy city and hear almost nothing! Very tranquil and a great place for reflection and prayer. I have been lucky enough to go to... More

This cathedral is awe inspiring. It is a beautiful building set high on the hill overlooking part of Bendigo city. It has an aura of peace and tranquility in a bustling city. The architecture is magnificent.

Not only does it dominate the cityscape, it dominates your senses when you visit it. Its acoustics are superb, and it has a real spiritual feel

Loved the quietness of the Cathedral and the stained glass windows, they were very pretty. The view from the top of the hill overlooking Bendigo was great.

We stopped here while visiting family in Bendigo. The cathedral was very impressive and has such a peaceful presence. We toured around and read many of the signs posted throughout about the cathedral's history and founders. The stations of the cross are beautiful paintings, the ceiling is magnificently carved wood, and the windows are very pretty (just wished it was... More
