The Cathedral is open most of the time and really does welcome the tourist and worshiper. The Qld sandstone is reminiscent of a wonderful bygone past with the colours and textures to match.

This cathedral was recently finished. The sunlight as it comes through the many stain glass windows is a surreal experience. It's a beautiful building to see and the architecture a wonder to behold. Get there while the sun is shining through the glass to experience the spectacular stain glass effects.

This is a beautiful church and between August to October you are sure to see a wedding in the afternoon. The church remains open to the public regardless if there is a wedding or not.

Just like St Stephens Catholic Cathedral, St John's Anglican cathedral is a beautiful piece of architecture. You marvel at the intricate design and the beautiful structure. It evokes a sense of calmness, surrounded by the hustle and bustle of the CBD, what a contrast!

A lovely cool spot on a hot day to rest and enjoy the wonderful craftsmanship. A brilliant building no matter what your spiritual beliefs.

I viewed this from the outside only. The architecture is very pretty and draws one to the building. Good location.

we had heard about all the restoration work - loved the new stained glass windows and the stonework, particularly in the front entrance ceiling.

The interior of the church is beautiful, in particular with the amazingly vibrant stainglass windows. The church is a must see.

We stumbled upon this church on our first walk into Brisbane. It is gorgeous and a beautiful piece of history that tells a story through its stained glass windows. We were welcomed in and briefly told the history of the church by one of the volunteers. Definitely worth popping in to explore.
