Beautiful place to visit, inside St Patricks is just divine and you feel a sense of calm wash over you the minute you walk inside. Outside the gardens are beautiful and walking around them makes this visit the complete package. A must see for people interested in architecture.

The main catholic church in Melbourne and the oldest cathedral in Australia. Work on St Patrick's started in 1858, but it took until 1939 for the spires to be added. It is mostly built from bluestone which is a dead giveaway that it is a very old building. If you come here late on a sunny day, the interior gets flooded with the most amazing golden light. It is a brilliant example of gothic revival architecture with beautiful stained glass, a really long central aisle and a highly polished tiled floor. Out the back there are a couple of interesting water features, a long cascade and up some steps a circular pool.

A beautiful "Gothic revival architecture" Cathedral right in the heart of Melbourne. The stonework, the timber-work and the stained glass is jaw dropping. Much to see, photograph and to sit and quietly contemplate. A grand beautiful structure such an asset to Melbourne and all Australians if not all Catholics. A well priced gift shop within the grounds is worth a visit too for those memento's. Would like to visit again when next in Melbourne.

I just love this cathedral. There are some religious movies who use this cathedral in their scenes. This church is really old, but when a person comes inside, you can feel the soul of freshness within you. You will find your inner peace, and you can relax in there. I found myself easier to relax in here than by doing a yoga.
