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.

  • St Mary's Cathedral is the largest house of worship in Perth. It began life in 1865 and remains the seat of the Catholic Archbishop of Perth. It's in Victoria Square and it's well worth seeing...  more »
