This is the largest church I have ever been in. It is amazing and is built on a hill with views all over Bendigo, I would say probably the highest point in Bendigo. It was built during the gold rush & you can imagine that it would have cost a lot of money. It is worth a visit no matter... More

A serene and quiet place for reflection and prayer during your Bendigo visit. The cathedral also is noteworthy for its impressive architecture. My husband and I have seen a number of European cathedrals and found the Sacred Heart Cathedral is a close rival.

Feeling great reverence inside & out. Great views from front entrance of cathedral. Cathedral not as big as St.Patrick Cathedral in Melbourne. Nevertheless just as well kept & historic

What a beautiful cathedral 3rd largest in Australia so lovely gentlemen that was there told us. Very peaceful place. Well worth a look,the architecture is amazing. You wonder how they did this all those years with very little tools etc. A wedding there would be awesome.

A beautiful gothic style cathedral, Sacred Heart is one of Australia's biggest churches. It's quite striking sitting up on the hill as you come into the centre of Bendigo and the steeple can be seen on the skyline from all around the city. Both the inside and outside are impressive with beautiful marbles floors and stained glass windows. Even after... More

A beautiful cathedral, worth a visit while you are in Bendigo. It was disturbing to see that all the windows were covered with wire to protect them from vandalism.

A simply amazing piece Gothic architecture in country Victoria. It was a very serene and quiet place of reflection. An interesting range of religious artefacts are located both inside and out. Well with a walk around the whole cathedral to experience it's full grandeur. Plenty of on street parking available.
