“Sanctuary in the city.”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

It was amazing to pop into St Paul's Cathedral in the middle of the busy city to be met with such peace. The architecture was extremely impressive and the history very interesting.

“Magnificent View”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Drop in to St Patrick's Cathedral one cold Friday. The interior was beautiful, quiet, serene and the windows were magnificent. It was late afternoon and the sun that shone like gold onto the side windows were marvelous view.
My partner and I kneel on the pew and with our heads bowed and eyes closed, we said our prayers and give thanks and counted our blessings. We walked to the back of the church and lighted some candles and gave donation.
This place is beautiful.

“A pearl in town”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

definitely to be seen. One of the best cathedrals I have seen in Melbourne. Photography is allowed (no flash please). We stopped to converse with the priest. He was very helpful and willing to answer a number of questions.
