St Patrick’s Cathedral

St Patrick's Cathedral
St Patrick’s Cathedral

St Patrick’s is an integral part of Melbourne, and its history tells us much about the State’s birth and growth. Situated on the fringe of the city grid, close enough to the heart of Melbourne to be a powerful presence and breathe with a life of its own.

The beauty of the Cathedral speaks of the glory of God. Its peace reaches to our innermost heart, and its welcome to those who pass by is of a God who is ever compassionate to us, his people.

REVIEWS:

“Absolutely amazing experience. I loved the lift ride! So quick yet so smooth. Amazing 360° views of Melbourne. Loved the little souvenir store and the deals they had. You get a discount if you buy the tickets online which was a bonus. I wasn’t brave enough for the edge experience but thoroughly enjoyed it. My boy also loved it. Lots of great corners to take pictures from. Lovely staff. Clean and very well maintained facilities. Apart from the fact that there was no ticket money outside as the sign said everything was top notch. I even made a meme about the sign outside 😂” – Krishneel K.

“Strangely not too busy here in January school holidays. Good mix of displays and interactive exhibits to satisfy young and old. Matchday experiences for the kids (and parents!) are well worth the extra few dollars. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff on hand as well. We spent more time here than we thought we would. Highly recommended.” – Michael R.
