St. Mary's cathedral is one of the landmarks of Sydney. It is an English-style gothic church founded in 1824. It has beautiful stained glass windows and four organs. During the High Mass on Sundays there are beautiful songs.

Sydney's most impressive Cathedral. Entry is free, however a small donation is encourated. For a $5 fee you can visit the crypt, which has an impressive terrazzo floor. The said, I was very disappointing to see that a plaque to Cardinal George Pell remains inside...More

It was lovely and peaceful to sit here and wonder at the various monuments etc. Some were extremely interesting and related to people who came out from the UK making their lives in Australia. One had something to do with the Mansion House in London.

Raised Catholic, I still find something beautiful and calming about these spaces. St. Mary's Cathedral is an architectural beauty and a wonderfully space for reflection - even if you don't find yourself to be religious. The only complaint is that some visitors truly see this...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens

Free, though some people might leave a small donation, knowing that all churches accept donations. The Sunday tour is also free.
