This is a beautiful old catholic church with the most amazing stained glass views from the inside. Its up top of Martin place on the way to Kings Cross. Many famous people have been married here or have had funeral services.

An impressive edifice in the Gothic style of architecture. Interiors reminiscent of great churches in England and France.

I’m not a religious person but I did enjoy the architecture of this cathedral. They also have Christmas lights / illuminations from 7.30pm each night until the 25th Dec 2017. Very pretty and worth a visit. Enjoy!

Doesn't matter if you have no religion or are a different one, this building is worth a visit. It's free. Just act appropriately. The architecture and workmanship is breathtaking and a great asset to Sydney's history

.......then this place is truly stunning. A huge interior space with just the right balance of ornamentation, all lit in a subtle glowing light. I’m not religious and visit these places for their architectural merit and this place delivers.

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.
