“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

On many o our trips to Bendigo we had always thought of visiting the Sacred Heart Cathedral and are very pleased we made the effort this time. Interesting displays and a delightful stained glass windows, a haven of rest in a busy city.

“A Nice Feeling”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

There is nothing to dislike here.
No matter your religion or if none at all it's a nice place to visit.
You will notice the different coloured stonework one part built before the other.There are excellent stained glass windows and it took over a century to build and was finished about 1977.

“Unbelievable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

We first saw this magnificent building when we drove into Bendigo we went the next day before leaving town. I have a good DSLR camera and couldn't fit all the church into the picture.

I have been in Cathedrals in Europe and this one is up there we were so surprised as we did not expect this kind of structure in a country town but we also had not realised the wealth that Bendigo once had this same magnificence was seen in other buildings in town.

Well worth the visit.

“Hard to believe we were in Australia”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

We were quite gobsmacked by the interior of this cathedral. Awesome leadlight. We were lucky enough to have someone playing the organ on our visit which added to the atmosphere. We have visited many famous cathedrals in Europe and this was very impressive.
