Such a beautifully peaceful cathedral. The architecture is superb.We were lucky enough to hear the bellringers practice on Thursday night. How wonderful! This serene place is open to the public and most welcoming. Thank you.

This cathedral is an example of lovely old architecture set in lovely grounds and with beautiful stained glass windows. Be sure to catch the one at the back of the organ.

A huge cathedral with beautiful stained glass windows, an impressive alter, and stations of the cross that are pure works of art.

Visited the Saint Marys and Joseph Catholic Cathedral for a late afternoon service on Easter Sunday. The Cathedral is magnificent. The congregation was fairly small (perhaps in light of the size of the Cathedral). The 3 Priests were from Nigeria. A lovely service!

Well worth seeing. Gothic feel on the inside, splendid architecture. Surrounded by shade and across from a park with amenities, its a must see for travellers and photographers. One of a number of buildings that give armidale that old time new england feel.

One of two Beautiful cathedrals in Armidale. The interior is full of lovely references to Catholicism with the stain glass windows and gorgeous altar. We decided to attend a service to experience it more fully and it was lovely. Make sure you give yourself time...More

Worth a look if you are in the area, if you enjoy churches and the architecture that identifies their character. Also the Anglican Church across the street - both are set in pretty gardens, close to the town centre - walking distance.
