Be sure to see it from the south side (with the entrance which I believe is the main entrance to the grounds), and you'll see it's "quite an imposing" structure with a solid stone facade (although there are also some "modern parts" with big glass...More

We have been staying in Perth for several months and have been greatly impressed with the Cathedral and its Sunday services. The choir is divine and the service formal and refined.

I didn't go inside but did stop to admire this beautiful building. You walk past it during your sightseeing so don't even have to make a special trip to see this beauty

Thanks very much for your review. Inside is very interesting too as the 2006 - 2009 renovations really opened up the interior. You are welcome to come in to have a look around or for some prayer or reflection.
