#3 of 9 in Historic Sites in Perth
Religious Site Tourist Spot
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.

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.
