This is a gorgeous building, imposing but great for some quiet reflection. Unfortunately there was a wedding about to start so we had to cut our visit short. Congratulations to the lucky couple. Worth a visit

Worth a look and some quiet reflection time. It's a working cathedral and quite the landmark in Melbourne. It's a lovely old church.

We arrived just in time for Saturday evening mass and the late afternoon light was streaming in the stained glass windows. It's also worth spending time in the grounds of the church because the gardens are a delight.

Yes, you can enter when there are no services. It would be best to contact the Cathedral to ask opening hours.

Lee, As a visitor and not a Melbourne-ite I think you would be best to use Public Transport or leave vehicle at Hotel.
