St. Mary's Cathedral
St. Mary’s Cathedral
Find an oasis of tranquillity in the heart of the city at this magnificent church, the spiritual home of Sydney's Catholic community and the seat of the archbishop of Sydney. Built from regional sandstone, the Gothic Revival landmark—located between the Royal Botanic Garden and Hyde Park—recalls the great cathedrals of Europe. The foundation stones were laid in 1821, and generations of artists and craftspeople have contributed works in glass and stone to the building's interior.
