If you are in Bendigo take some time to pop in and admire the scale,scope and majesty of the architecture of this cathedral. Is as impressive as many churches that are located throughout Europe. Please remember it is a place of worship!

I think so. There are about 4 services spread across Sunday from memory. But it was very welcoming when we went through the week.
