If you are interested in the old Catherdrals this is an interesting place to visit. Lots of stained glass and carved wood. Scheduled times the bells are played. Nice park across the stree to sit and relax.

The cathedral is so beautiful and big. I so love the structure, really a instagram worthy pic indeed. We attended the sunday mass and it is so solemn, there was even a misallette for everyone. there's also a shop inside. The altar is very beautiful

My wife and I visited St Mary's cathedral in Sydney while we toured Sydney. This is a must visit place if you are a Catholic or not. Calm and peace in the midst of all worries of the city. Grace and blessing for sure.

We stopped in for a quick look. Very peaceful. Wasn't too crowded. We found a quiet spot to mediate. Easy to find.

I didn't really view St Mary's Cathedral as an attraction to visit as I was there to worship for Sunday mass. It was 2 more weeks to Christmas and they church interiors had Christmas trees (real ones that smell very nice) and a nativity scene...More

This building is one of the coolest places in Sydney. The architecture was amazing, I'm not sure I have words to describe it fully. I spend a lot of time here just walking around and looking at everything. It was so peaceful and calming inside,...More

The cathedral is next to the hyde park. Easy walking from the city center. It's a big building. A must visit.

If you happen to be in the vicinity of Hyde Park, do not miss a visit to St Mary's Cathedral. You don't have to be a Catholic to admire its Gothic architecture. The interior gives you a peaceful feeling. Beautiful stained glass windows adorn the...More

This cathedral is right next to Hyde Park and the Australian Museum. Occupying a large square, it is grand and remarkable. The interior is very solemn.

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
