St. Patrick's Cathedral is the tallest and the largest church in Australia. Dedicated to St. Patrick as the Catholic population of Melbourne around 1850 was almost entirely Irish. Designed in the Gothic style, gloomy bluestone on the outside, warmer feelings on the inside.

We enjoy visiting cathedrals during our travels and St. Patrick's didn't disappoint. We also attended Sunday service (although I'm not Catholic). Well worth visiting.

This cathedral is in a pleasant part of Melboune easily reached by tram. The outside is in dark stone but inside especially when the church lights are on it is a warm peaceful place.

I like to visit St Patrick;s Cathedral and go there any time if I am close by. I love especially the moments when you can enjoy the organ music there.

The cathedral is a quiet oasis in the bustle of the city and some of the stain glass windows are very beautiful.

What a beautiful Cathedral, so surprised the name is not outside as its next to St Peters. It was mind blowing as there was a school choir practicing which was truly magical. It just echoed, we sat and listened to the practice. The whole place was so well kept and the sun shone in the windows. We come from England... More

St Patrick's Cathedral has amazing architecture and is well worth a visit due to the sheer size of the building. Incredible ceilings to take your breath away.

We walked around the outside to admire the cathedral buildings - especially the intricate stonework and leadlight windows.
