Great cathedral across the street from Hyde Park (you can pop in after walking through the park). It doesn't compare to cathedrals in Europe, but it is great nevertheless. I think you can walk through it all in less then 30 minutes.

Steps from Hyde Park. Architecturally beautiful exterior and complements the surrounding attractions such as Hyde Park Barracks, Hyde Park and the other famous statue in the area. Definitely worth a visit. The Hop on -off bus stop is close by across the street. Great photo...More

As Cathedrals go, it is not very impressive or ancient, especially if you have seen a few in Europe. But it is a beautiful building nontheless and a lovely place of worship. Don't go if you are looking for an architectural marvel but do go...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.
