“Spectactular”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2014

As with others, we saw this by just driving around. Having said that, you cannot miss it - it literally dominates the landscape and it is breathtaking in its beauty and architecture and location.

“Breathtaking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2014

We found this Cathedral by chance, we were driving around Newcastle and saw the Australian Flag on top of the building. This is simply breathtaking. If you are planning to visit the Cathedral go on dusk, you will not regret it.

Very calm and peaceful church. A must visit as interior architecture is wonderful. The old lady at the front counter is very friendly and nice. Try spending an hour atleast.
Worth the visit.

“Newcastle Sights!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

This cathedral is beautiful and is well worth a visit - especially inside. Many aspects to learn about. Allow at least 30 minutes to an hour. The staff are very knowledgeable about the cathedral's history.

“Beautiful structure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

The cathedral is a lovely piece of history in Newcastle. Sitting right on top of the hill overlooking the ocean. Stunning views. Inside the church is also very beautiful and serene.
A donation box is there to assist with the preservation of the church.
Its lovely to take friends from overseas there.
