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.

Lobvvely big Cathedral made of beautfiul honeycomb stone perched on the hill, it is on the main street so you cannot miss it and it really stands out. Worth a peek inside and a wander around externally.
