Its a nice place to browse through on days when visitation is allowed. The inmates do give a detailed tour. Its free. The church is beautiful. The whole place overlooks the bay and its beautiful on a sunny day.

This is a very well known and historic Church of Wellington. Specially if you are going towards Mount Victoria you can stop by and have a look at its beautiful architecture.

I love the interesting textures, shapes and colours of old buildings. Think I might do a church-crawl in the near future and take a photo journey around the remaining oldies in Wellington

St Gerard’s stands out like a beacon on the flank of Mount Victoria, overlooking Oriental Bay. The church is quite nice, but was unfortunately closed when I walked up to it. An interesting stop-off on the way to the peak, but if you want to...More
