St. Mary's Cathedral, Sydney
Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Historic Sites, Tourist Spots
Visit Australia's longest church, St. Mary's Cathedral. Completed in 1882 in the Gothic Revival style, the cathedral of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Sydney provides an impressive profile as it stretches back from Hyde Park. From the outside, admire the yellow-block sandstone facade, Gothic windows, pointed arches, and sharp spires reaching skyward. Inside, crane your neck to take in the high central nave and scan the walls to view colorful stained-glass windows. Pope Pius XI bestowed on the church the honor of minor basilica in 1932, and Pope Benedict XVI visited it during World Youth Day in 2008. Make St. Mary's Cathedral a centerpiece of your Sydney vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Sydney tourist route planner.

シドニー観光でメイン観光地として寄った教会。 自分が行った日曜日の11:00ごろに、大司教様（司祭？）などが中央を歩かれてミサが行われていた。 一般客も結構入っていたが、みんな帽子を取り、騒がずに見ていたが、自分も含めて結構な観光客はさっと出ていった。（これを咎められるような事はありませんでした。しずかに退場すれば問題ないかと） 宗教旗を掲げ、金色の司祭様たちの入場とミサ曲の合唱がとても神秘的でし... read more »The church went as a main tourist destination in Sydney.

Beautiful architecture. Lovely place to sit and meditate.... of course this is not always possible with all the tourists talking loudly and snapping away. Don't miss the free guided tour of the cathedral after the 1030am mass. The tour begins at 1200.and lasts 45mins to an hour.
It is awesome. You feel Christianity there and become very near to GOD, the grscious. You feel purity in your soul and you are saved.
I'm having a good day, why not let us have a prayer? Dear Jesus, Thanks for the ez skins Fnatic fanboys - I knew that I would win as the odds were 30-70 VP golden rule easy win Amen
i drive past the college every day and i must say how well behaved they are, always calmly walking to school and always looking presentable. My wife who catches the train, says that they have very good manners and are relatively quiet. If i had a son i would definitely have SMCC in my thoughts as a suitable college.
God is all of us combined as a Nation unlike any other. The most diverse multicultural country/Continent in the universe... Australia and I found it with #GoogleMaps
