When we were there they had a wedding going on. Tourist being tourist, we were taking photos along with 50 other people. 70% of the cathedral was being cordoned of because of the wedding. We were rudely told by someone to sit down because there...More

The interior and exterior of the cathedral itself is just awesome. You feel you are in Europe for a moment. Lovely experience if you can catch Sunday mass when you are traveling to Sydney.

Solemnity, peaceful and architecturally well designed. An excellent place for meditation and connecting with your faith.

St Mary's Cathedral was beautiful! One could take pictures outside as well as inside. The walk up the stairs was lifting. When we entered the Cathedral, we discovered that an actual Mass was taking place. I was immediately drawn in. The Father presiding over the...More

Stopped on a whim while doing another tour and found a beautiful respite in the city that rivals cathedrals in Europe

It is a spectacular cathedral to spend some time exploring. (20-30 minutes). When we went, they had mass going, but it was still large enough to watch without being disrespectful. Very beautiful inside and out.

This is God's Holy Temple and was treated with much respect while we were visiting. The building is very old and the stained glass is magnificent. The church was in session while there and it was very quiet. A lovely place of worship.

Doors are open for quite prayers, or admiring its beauty. Surrounded by stairs often used for a meeting place, full of visoitors from all over the world.

We attended the 10:30 Mass and found the procession and the music beautiful. The church was relatively crowded and we enjoyed seeing the vast mix of cultures who attend the mass. There is a small gift shop for those who would like to take home...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.

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
