Knowing that this church survived a Japanese attack and also earthquake and still is architecturally intact and interesting is amazing. If you visit this church also take some time to walk through the graveyard behind and read the inscriptions of those interred there.

Well appointed cathedral on the hill of the city. Beautiful interior. The park behind is worth a wander too. Historical graves. Great view of the city and the Hunter River.

A fabulous old Cathedral. The cathedral itself is full of the stuff that make churches interesting; impressive stained glass windows, war memorabilia, nods to clergy now departed and of course over the top worship ornaments that makes you wonder why they aren’t sold off to...More
