Catholic Old St. Stephen's Church (chapel), Brisbane

(4.6/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
An imposing, gothic revival-style façade conceals the equally impressive, striking interior of Catholic Old St. Stephen's Church (chapel), a cathedral that sits snugly in the shadow of a number of Brisbane’s tallest, glassiest skyscrapers. Restored and refurbished in the 1980s, the cathedral retains an iconic status within Brisbane, noted particularly for its Harry Clarke stained-glass window and its historical focus on choral singing and music.
