There are a couple of cathedral next to one another so you can cover all in one shot. Limited tourists visiting cathedrals. You can have the whole place by yourself and pray as long as you want. You also have all the freedom to take picture inside and outside of the cathedral.

Just a gorgeous facility that we would recommend to those visiting Melbourne. Would suggest that you walk all around it as the views are spectacular.

The doors to this amazing church are open to the public. We enjoyed the beauty of the place and the history. The gardens outside are also beautiful with quite a number of things to see.

The cathedral is massive, reminds me of Italy. The artwork, the led lighting. It was a pleasure to visit and bring back some memories . Worth seeing to appreciate the architecture and attention to detail

I have been to this church few weeks ago. It is awesome. Other than praying, there is a tour as well, you can get the chance to explore this church

A trip to Melbourne need to include a visit to this amazing cathedral. Towering stain glass windows, impressive architecture and sculptures/status. It's old world magnificence at it's best. Pack a coat coz it's darn cold in here too.
