“Beautiful Catholic cathedral”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

So glad we were able to attend Mass at St Patrick's in Melbourne. The architecture is stunning and it made us feel a part of the Catholic family of Australia, just by being there.

“Nice Church”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

St. Patrick's is the largest Catholic church in Melbourne. It is quite nice, but having seen so many cathedrals in Europe, it is hard to get excited about this one.

International travellers may sneer, however the vast majority will succumb to the wonderful architecture, history and spiritual reverence.

“Outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

This is a truly remarkable Cathedral. You will be in awe from the splendour of the outside details of this truly remarkable building. Take the time to view the inside of this magnificent place of worship and you will be amazed at the beauty and history that surrounds the magnificent altar. Just be conscious of the fact that the Cathedral is a place of worship and be respectful when entering.

“So beautiful.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

I loved that the Cathedral was open to go in a say a quiet prayer and then to go and have a look at the gorgeous altar. The church is actually a historian's dream...
