St. Mary's Cathedral, Perth

4.5
#3 of 12 in Historic Sites in Perth
St. Mary's Cathedral melds the church's historic walls with modern architecture, intensifying its charm. The facade near the Royal Perth Hospital has the more modern look. Some of the new design elements are the striking glass backdrop, the lighted glass panels behind the altar, and the steel beams supporting the balcony. The gardens and views surrounding the cathedral are perfect for a quiet picnic. A visit to St. Mary's Cathedral represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Perth trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • I noticed the spires as I was walking from Queens Gardens to the CBD. I came by the hospital side so was able to walk around to the front passing the memorial on the side. It was a nice church and was surprised they had a mass around 12.30. Didn't go in because of this. Nice architecture and the front looked nice.
  • A beautiful open plan church. So peaceful. Love the glass on both sides and looking out you see spectacular coloured garden. The ceiling is divine....
  • The building structure is beautiful. Nice and quiet environment. Definitely worth the visit From Singapore
  • The place is amazing, comfortable and relax. I loved. God bless!
  • Quiet and serene place to pray. Crypt is located below the church. It has both open and covered parking space for the parishioners convenience.

Where to stay in Perth

When you choose your Perth accommodations, remember that this city stretches over a wide area, which can cause issues for visitors with limited time to sightsee. The best way to remain close to urban transportation is to stay in the central business district or neighboring Northbridge, where you'll also find the greatest selection of hotels. To avoid the center's big crowds and steep hotel prices, consider booking a room in the coastal town of Mandurah, easily accessible by Perth's reliable suburban railway system.
