We attended the Advent service at this lovely cathedral and could have listened to the choir sing for much longer. We also attended a concert there. Always something on in this cathedral and the services are lovely.

Likes another cathedral which stand among the city, but it is the center of everything for people to be here. It's a good place to pray, rest, relax, learn and etc. Like a gothic design, we thought, it's one of a smooth beautiful cathedral.

The cathedral with its three large towers is typical neo-gothic building in the so-called early English style, but sparcely decorated. Serene atmosphere inside.

This centrally located cathedral is absolutely beautiful. While the interior isn't too opulent, it's enough to create a WOW effect upon entering. Acoustics is very nice, too.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
