“Christ Church”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

Christ Church is Newcastle's Anglican cathedral, which dominates the city's skyline. There are some interesting old graves in the cemetery, and a good view over the city from the back. For the adventurous, it is possible to climb the tower (for a small fee).

“Newcastle Cathedral”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Equal to any City Cathedral. Check times for tours and services. There is a small shop in the foyer you can purchase memorabilia
this helps with the ongoing coast of maitenance. Extensive damage was caused during the 1989 earthquake. The cathedral is a beautiful place to view the city and harbour of Newcastle. It has many history graves in the large well manicured ground.

“gorgeous place”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

This place is so beautiful, with sweeping views and lovely grounds around the outside. It is a lovely place to visit, and if you're lucky enough to catch a service - not that I'm religious - the music is awe-inspiring. I'm not a church goer but this is too pretty to miss.
