Its located right behind the Parliament Building. We did not go outside but enjoyed the architecture from outside.

It is where my husband asked me to marry him, and so extra special for us. A beautiful place to be reflective about Jesus Christ.

Amazing architecture. Went for early morning Mass whist visiting Melbourne. You experience a feeling of awe upon entering the Cathedral. Rivals those of Europe.

We managed to be invited to a Wedding at St. Patricks Cathedral. It was stunning. A long aisle for the Bride to walk up and it was magnificent. The altar was beautiful.

As a service was taking place, we used the discrete side entrance to slip in and enjoy some of the service (as they weren't allowing people through the main entrance during the service). A beautiful and gothic church, the largest I have seen in Australia,...More

Set in the centre of Melbourne this cathedral is a pleasure to visit. It is warm, welcoming, beautiful and full of character. Well recommended.

The church was beautiful though simple. Inside, you can find different alters and a brief explanation. The church is still used today for mass.

This. Was our first stop upon arriving in Melbourne, the staff was friendly and helpful. It is a must, as they are a wealth of information.

The interior of St Patrick's is jaw dropping with its magnificent architecture. Churches just aren't built like this anymore, so we must preserve them at all costs. We were lucky to visit on Anzac Day just after the march finished and were amazed to see...More

St. Patrick's in an absolutely stunning cathedral. The architecture is fascinating and the inside is so beautiful, with the stained glass windows being a definite highlight. It is quite a grand place, as the tallest cathedral in Australia, to spend some time.

Is the church open to visitors outside of the usual mass time? Are we allowed to enter the church to pray and what time do they close daily?

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

Is there a timetable/ schedule for when the bells are rung? Hoping to hear it on a weekday :)

Michelle K. I did not hear any bells midweek during my visit, but other reviewers indicate they are rung to call parishioners to Mass, and for special occasions (weddings). P.S. do not miss Cook's Cottage... More

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