We attended a performance of a USA singer/dancer in this Cathedral and the acoustics were amazing. The architecture is so beautiful and breathtaking that it is well worth a visit on your travels. Easy access when you are in the Adelaide CBD.

We were doing a morning bus tour of Adelaide City and our driver stopped here and luckily we did. We were greeted at the entrance by a very happy volunteer who explained to us some of the church's history and facts. We then wandered around by ourselves taking photos. The cathedral was stunning inside and kept up beautifully.

The staff here are informative and helpful but we were spoiled after having seen the stunning Old St.Pauls in Wellington NZ. The alter in brown timber is unusual. It is worth a visit, which was included on our city tour of Adelaide.

I felt humbled Looking at this beautiful cathedral. We were welcomed at the door and advised re things to look at and about a chapel at the end if the building. I was glad we visited. We caught the free city bus to Melbourne Street and walked from there to the cathedral.

Called in during the week. Lovely helpful welcome from volunteers. Lots of history. There are some Victorian windows, but the ones to see are the modern ones. Brilliant work, and full of symbolism.

St. Peter's is a fairly typical 19th century neo-gothic cathedral with nothing of special note. A charming gentleman gave us an interesting tour.

I'm not religious, so to me its just an ok visit. Albeit this, it is a very impressive church with quite the history and grandeur.

An icon of Adelaide, near to variety of attractions- adelaide oval, River Torrens and O Connell st cafe strip. Church is open to public on certain with tour which needs booking- check website. Within church has glorious stained windows. Grabbed a sandwich or have a beer or lunch at the Cathedral Pub next to it
