It stands just over from Hyde park, it's such a pretty building. It's stands out as well as it's not surrounded by any other buildings. It really does look impressive. Well worth a visit.

We’ve seen many Cathedrals around the world but St Mary’s is one of my favourites. It’s not over the top and has a great feel about it. It’s a working church so there’s every chance you’ll find yourself walking in during a mass. If you’re...More

This is a truly awesome building with the most amazing stained glass. Well worth a visit and so close to Hyde Park, you can experience both in one day. I love St Mary's at Christmas, when they have the most amazing light show. People from...More

A beautiful cathedral. Definitely worth a visit. Although large, still feels very intimate and spiritual. Some excellent stained glass windows, lovely statues, interesting stations of the cross and a truly stunning painting immediately as you enter.

The Cathedral was an excellent place to visit in Sydney - interesting architecture and a spiritual ambiance - highly recommended.

As you walk in the door in the early morning hours the light is reflected in this beautiful church thru the stained glass windows. Pictures turn out awesome.

Beautiful inside and out. I spent some time in the St Mary's Cathedral and found that I didn't want to leave, though prior commitments pulled me away. I would happily go back to visit this spot any time. Its peaceful, and there is a real...More

Take a trip back into the 18th Century in this old but magnificent location. Impressively located at the end of Hyde Park

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
