This is a great example of a stone church and it is a pretty imposing as it overlooks the highway through the town. It is a Catholic Church and is open most days.

Wanted to have a look at this cathedral and I had been told how beautiful it is. Oh yes! Beautiful cathedral indeed and was very pleased to learn that a bishop from my homeland and whom I know, is buried there. I enjoyed walking around and going round the grounds on the outside.

It's imposing presence is amazing it can be seen for miles. Inside and out it does not disappoint. Worth looking at even for the non religious. Architecture and beauty alone

We couldn't leave Bendigo without a visit to this wonderful cathedral and it was certainly worth it. An absolutely awesome visual experience. The stained glass windows, the ceiling. Just the overall grandeur of the whole thing. Definitely worth seeing.

This Cathedral sits in the outside of the city, you cannot miss it. It is truly a spectacular building. Congratulations should go to those who keep it looking pristine. We have visited many Cathedrals in England and this is definitely one of the best indulging the UK Cathedrals. Worth a visit.

This cathedral sits in a prominent position and draws in any tourist who is looking for the spectacular. It is open to the public. The pictures in the booklet of the original cathedral and the new section are particularly interesting.
