“Lady Beauty”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

A beautiful architecture and feel very calm and holy. The deco inside was just sweet for the eyes. Attended a Mass there as well. Donate a min to buy the candles and light at the left corner inside the church.

“Beautifully detailed”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

it is one of the iconic old Cathedrals of Sydney and has its importance in History. Masses still happen in it and it is open for everyone to visit it. it is only closed if there are private ceremonies such as weddings. it's worth the visit while you are making your way to Hyde Park or Macquarie Street.

“Magnificent Cathedral”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

St Mary's Cathedral is located next to Hyde Park in Sydney and is a beautiful gothic structure built in sandstone. The interior is very elegant with lovely stained glass windows, paintings and statues. There is a plaza in front of the cathedral under which is a public swimming pool. The plaza in front and the park to the side add to the setting with space to set the cathedral off away from the tall buildings of the city which makes it pefect for seeing its architecture at its best. At Christmas there is a wonderful light display on the front of the cathedral with many light patterns projected onto the fascade.
