Knowing that this church survived a Japanese attack and also earthquake and still is architecturally intact and interesting is amazing. If you visit this church also take some time to walk through the graveyard behind and read the inscriptions of those interred there.

Old church dominating the highest point in Newcastle. Not as impressive as the great European cathedrals but lovely inside. and worth a look.

Well appointed cathedral on the hill of the city. Beautiful interior. The park behind is worth a wander too. Historical graves. Great view of the city and the Hunter River.
