This cathedral is beautiful and its architecture amazing. Whether you are religious or not it is worth a visit. It is stunning without being boastful or glamorous. Would have liked to have been able to ask questions if someone had been present.

I had never been inside the cathedral; very interesting; staff there were friendly and informative; he even showed me the original foundation stone outside. Stained glass not overdone; would have liked to go up to choir and look at the organ.

What a site if you think it is impressive from the outside wait until you get inside. We spent 45 minutes inside and could have spent more

An interesting visit to this massive cathedral that sits on a prominent rise in Bendigo. Open to visitors and has huge ceilings, colourful lead light/stain glass windows, and various religious items of local significance to look at.

This Cathedral is magnificent, it is certainly up there with some of the great churches of Italy and Europe. It has a very imposing presence as you drive in to Bendigo from the south.

There are lots of volunteers in the church whom I am sure would give you some info on it.

I think so. There are about 4 services spread across Sunday from memory. But it was very welcoming when we went through the week.
