If you're in the area and have the time, it is worth popping in to see this old bluestone Church. A wall of stained glass stands behind the main altar in its otherwise dark and gloomy interior. In contrast, the fence around the Cathedral was...More

This cathedral was attractive immediately. On their metal fence they had put attractive colors. That was cool! They had some nice flowers as well. The church was well built with big grey stones. It was attractive. I enjoyed exploring it. Worthwhile to see!

It is quite a church built in blue stone and well worth a visit if in Ballarat. As there was a funeral underway it was not possible to see the interior
