With construction commenced in 1863, consecrated in 1865 and completed in 2010, this is obviously a blend of more than one architectural influence, which turns out to be a successful mix of the old and modern. Internally it has a bright and open atmosphere with...More

Thank you for visiting the Cathedral and your review. The Cathedral tries to strike a balance between its primary function as a place of worship and prayer and a place of interest for its architectural splendour. I hope you find many more opportunities to visit.

We visited St Mary's, noting it up the hill from where we were walking. It is situated in the centre of a well kept square. The gadens surrounding the cathedral are neat and clean and well designed. The cathedral itself has been completed using a...More

Be sure to see it from the south side (with the entrance which I believe is the main entrance to the grounds), and you'll see it's "quite an imposing" structure with a solid stone facade (although there are also some "modern parts" with big glass...More

We have been staying in Perth for several months and have been greatly impressed with the Cathedral and its Sunday services. The choir is divine and the service formal and refined.

Thanks very much for your review. Inside is very interesting too as the 2006 - 2009 renovations really opened up the interior. You are welcome to come in to have a look around or for some prayer or reflection.

Thank you for visiting the Cathedral and your review. St Mary's is the result of work in the 19th (1865), 20th (late 1920s) and 21st (2006-2009) centuries which does result in an interesting building architecturally as well as its core purpose as a place of...More
