This is a lovely piece of architecture. It is on the edge of the Sydney CBD and thus has a commanding spot as the land falls away towards the Kings Cross end of town. It stands proudly in an uncluttered way and it is free to pop in and have a look about. There is a small gift shop there which obviously sells the sort of thing that religious people may wish to purchase, books on the cathedral and various prominent people.
There are the usual high ceilings, stained glass windows, devotees at prayer etc and given the forecourt out the front it is easy to get a decent shot of the building.
If you are on a budget this would be a good inclusion on a walk through the city - start in Hyde Park, check out the ANZAC Memorial and thence over to here, then along to Hyde Park Barracks (entry fee there) and thence farther long to the Mint building, then the NSW Public Library to check out any free exhibitions and thence farther along to the free NSW Art Gallery. From there check out the Botanical Gardens and then walk around to the Opera House and Circular Quay.
