St. Mary, Sydney Overview

Considered to be very important for the Catholic community, St. Mary’s Cathedral has a very high religious significance and is also the seat of the Archbishop of Sydney. The cathedral has around 3000 people visiting it on a daily basis and is located close to Hyde Park. The cathedral also offers a free guided tour at 2 PM every Sunday.

The cathedral is one of architectural genius, as you'd expect the seat of the Archbishop to be. It was built in the neo-Gothic style, with intricate detailing on all sides of the exterior. The church is one of the largest, in fact, it is the longest church in the country. Inside, you will notice the beautiful stained glass windows depicting various Christian stories, a highlight of the church. Another historical and well-known feature of the cathedral are the bells, which have been changed and replaced over the years, with the total number at 14 today, of which two are used only on certain occasions. St. Mary's also houses a collection of treasures, including the painting 'Stations of the Cross' and the sculpture 'The Unknown Soldier'.
