This church reminded me of the great churches in Europe. Stunning inside. We attended Sunday Mass which was a great experience well recommended a visit.

St Marys Cathedral is beautiful, inside and out. Definitely worth a visit, though it can often be closed for services, etc.

The best view of the Cathedral is probably from College street. The impressive flight of stairs leading up to the entrance and the two slender spires pointing to the sky making this elegant minor basilica amazing, chiefly when the walls glitter in gold light in...More

Spectacular from the outside. Inside quite dark. Lots of stain glass. Services on so not so easy to view inside.

within walking distance from my hotel, I passed by several times and went in once. I happened to take a photo, just before I saw the 'no photos' sign! Beautiful inside as well. A magnificent piece of architecture.

About 3 blocks from our hotel, we finally got there on our last days of 3. We would see it on our bus resides. Churches are amazingly beautiful. Just to stand or sit in the large hall, pulpit in front and organ in the rear...More

Beautiful church inside and out. They do a nice job ensuring it stays quiet and respectful on the inside. No taking pictures from the center pews of the church.

Modern cathedral, more worthy the outside than the inside. If you are in the surroundings, just enter since it is free but it is not a great cathedral (at least compared with European ones).

Beautiful Cathedral with stunning interior made of different material: red cedar in the roof, side aisles of stone and the high altar of limestone. The stained glass windows are magnificent with the chancel window being the most stunning. A must see to be truly appreciated!

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.

Very few. Parking in Sydney city is not recommended; there are parking stations but they are expensive and clumsy. Go by train or bus - St James railway station is immediately adjacent to the cathedral (use the Queens Square... More
