Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / New South Wales / Greater Newcastle / Newcastle / Christ Church Cathedral
A well-preserved piece of Newcastle history, Christ Church Cathedral is surrounded by lush gardens and overlooks the ocean. Designed in the Gothic Revival style and originally planned to include a central tower and spire over the central crossing, the cathedral was completed in 1902 without either of those features finished (the tower was only added in 1979). Stop by for daily mass or visit the cathedral’s gift shop, which sells a wide range of handmade souvenirs and devotional items. The shop is located at the entrance into the cathedral and offers hand-stitched bookmarks, colorful wooden crosses, rosary beads, jewelry, and a variety of greeting and prayer cards.

The choir at Christ Church Cathedral is wonderful - they sing on Sundays at the 9.30am service and on Sunday evenings for evensong. Beautiful music in a historic and spiritual setting - it is hard..... more »
A good place to stop to see a beautiful Cathedral and learn a little of the history of the city. You can also take a trip up the tower for 10AUD to see the city from a great vantage point. The lady running the gift shop was really helpful and they have a sheet that you can take with you as you walk around in order to do a self-guided tour.
Lovely church at the top of the hills. Provides an amazing aerial view of Newcastle from the tower. Friendly lady at the front operating the gift shop. Impressive architecture and history. Free to visit and photography allowed. Additional donation required to climb the tower for the aerial view.
A wonderful church :) There's a few cool stuff in it too if you were ever curious about what's behind the main church chamber
Absolutely fabulous. Recommended highly
Such an amazing place! ❤️
