This cathedral is in a pleasant part of Melboune easily reached by tram. The outside is in dark stone but inside especially when the church lights are on it is a warm peaceful place.

I like to visit St Patrick;s Cathedral and go there any time if I am close by. I love especially the moments when you can enjoy the organ music there.

The cathedral is a quiet oasis in the bustle of the city and some of the stain glass windows are very beautiful.

What a beautiful Cathedral, so surprised the name is not outside as its next to St Peters. It was mind blowing as there was a school choir practicing which was truly magical. It just echoed, we sat and listened to the practice. The whole place was so well kept and the sun shone in the windows. We come from England... More

St Patrick's Cathedral has amazing architecture and is well worth a visit due to the sheer size of the building. Incredible ceilings to take your breath away.

We walked around the outside to admire the cathedral buildings - especially the intricate stonework and leadlight windows.

I loved the architecture of this cathedral. First I was impressed with the fountains and statues outside but when I went inside the building with its beautiful stone arches, ornate masonry, mosaic tiled floors, stained glass windows and huge cavernous interior I sat in silence and tried to take it all in and I felt richer for the experience.

Tucked away but near a hotel. Beautiful sanctuary. Mass is beautiful if you want to catch a service.

We stopped by to visit the church before touring the parliament building. It has some beautiful stained glass - but there are many windows that are just plain glass. Not sure if these had been damaged - or just never installed. There were many worshippers there when we visited - so remember to be respectful.
