“beautiful light at sunset”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2012

While not a historic cathedral in the European sense it is old for Perth. Recent renovation has replaced the middle section with glass. The effect of the light is magical near dusk. Certainly worth wandering up Hay street if you are a tourist - or perhaps on the way back from a visit to the mint (which is a block away)

In a city without much history it is good to see this church.

“Classic Cathedral”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2012

A lovely cathedral in the centre of town. Worth the short walk from the city centre. Certainly does not compare with older churchs in other overseas locations in the way of grandeur.

“Lovely Church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2011

Perth hasn't got many "wow" churches like European cities, but this is one of the best in Perth albiet small on international scale.
