  • Great church. Priest is a wonderful fella. His homilies though, bless his heart, are increasingly tangential and rambly. Would love to see some new energy doing the homily. But overall an excellent church.
  • Ensure you visit this beautiful cathedral in Cairns. The stained glass windows are a treasure.
