“Peaceful”

I usually go to see avery single church because...it seems strange but in the chaotic city you can find piece of peace. This is so nice.

“St Mary's Cathedral Perth, W.A.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

There is no other word for this cathedral than "Magnifico". It has had a multi-million makeover to integrate the old historic buildig with the new added space. It is located central city, opposite Royal Perth Hospital. The architecture is amazing, its position is commanding.
The interior is both reverent and peaceful. Tours of the building are available. Parking is available below the building.

“St Mary's Cathedral”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

St Mary's Cathedral became my church of choice whilst staying in Perth. I loved what they did with the building, expanding it to incorporate the old and the new. I loved the marble floors, the open glass walls, but most of all, the wonderful music from its cantors and choirs. My Sunday morning was not complete without a church service at St Mary's Cathedral. A very uplifting experience.

“Too many people just take it for granted.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Every time I visit the zoo I enjoy it. Yet I must be guilty of saying that I most proberly only visited it five times in my 62 years. It is in the bucket for 2014.
