The St Andrew's Cathedral is perhaps one of the oldest cathedral in Australia. The first foundation stone was laid by Governor Lachlan Macquarie in 1819 but was uncompleted due to political changes and lack of funding. It was not until 20 years later that construction on the site began in earnest. The cathedral was finally consecrated in the year 1868.
Visitors to this holy building will find beautiful stained glass windows, several memorials and a grand old 16th century English Great Bible. Lunch time recitals are held usually every Thursday afternoons and visitors are encouraged to come in and listen.
Find CityTM takes no responsibility for the owners' change in phone or fax number, postal address and website information.
TIPS: If you are thinking of visiting the cathedral, take a note of the delicate pointed arches of the windows, the pinnacles, buttresses and towers as they are all influenced by Gothic Revival Art designed by Edmund Blacket.
