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.

  • Tour guide gave us the history and showed us around. It is rather beautiful, and the tour was interesting. Worth a visit..
  • Ambience - reverence and serene - very good for prayers and meditation. Iconic. Adequate security. Souvenir shop and much more. I love the place. I feel safe and secure just sitting in a corner to pray and meditate. Ample parking. Red cat route.
  • This is a very historic church that was built more than a century ago, the architecture is very beautiful both from the interior and exterior, in general this place is quite well maintained and very clean not only on the inside, even the outside is also clean, the grass is very well maintained good for other plants, very strategic location, in the center of Perth city, easy to reach from all sides of Perth city, large enough capacity, very good for those who are looking for peace when carrying out mass on Sundays
  • Great service and safe
  • Special Marriage mass. Wonderful experience. Thanks to Bishop Sproxton for celebrating mass for all of us.
