Thank you for visiting the Cathedral and your review. The Cathedral tries to strike a balance between its primary function as a place of worship and prayer and a place of interest for its architectural splendour. I hope you find many more opportunities to visit.

We have been staying in Perth for several months and have been greatly impressed with the Cathedral and its Sunday services. The choir is divine and the service formal and refined.

I didn't go inside but did stop to admire this beautiful building. You walk past it during your sightseeing so don't even have to make a special trip to see this beauty

Thanks very much for your review. Inside is very interesting too as the 2006 - 2009 renovations really opened up the interior. You are welcome to come in to have a look around or for some prayer or reflection.
