The place is lovely and architecture although not so grand is still noteworthy. The historic significance is worth noting.

Thoroughly enjoyed walking around and through this lovely cathedral. Apart from the history of its development including the key people involved its fascinating to see / understand the architectural and engineering aspects. Defintely worth a visit followed by a walk through Fitzroy Gardens.

Lovely place to go and get some time out of the bushel of the city. Was nice and cool too inside so a bonus to get away from the heat.

There perhaps is a lot of old churches outside in Australia, but this one is unique in Melbourne. Worth a visit if you're close by.

Beautiful cathedral in the centre of Melbourne. We liked this one more than the St. Paul’s cathedral. From the outside the black stones look very special. Go here if you seek some rest. Free entrance.

Yes, you can enter when there are no services. It would be best to contact the Cathedral to ask opening hours.

Lee, As a visitor and not a Melbourne-ite I think you would be best to use Public Transport or leave vehicle at Hotel.
