This is a must see during your trip to Perth - it's beautifully renovated cathedral right in the center, combinding both old and new architecture. Feels very peaceful. They oranize tours on Tuesday morning, check their website for details.More

Attended Mass during Easter and Christmas. A beautiful spot to meditate and pray and the extensions are quite beautiful and fit in well with the old part of the Cathedral.

Saturday evening Vigil Mass was lovely. The female singer was exceptional and the organ powerful and moving. Enjoyed Monsignor Keating's homily.
