Great architecture. Serene atmosphere both inside and outside the cathedral. Classic sound system that does not spoil the melody of the choir. Friendly priest.

Normal outside but marvelous view inside! The highest and largest cathedral in the south hemisphere. Just go inside and feel the sacredness. I’m an atheist but I still have a strong feeling of the calling from god in this cathedral.

Beautiful Catholic church with a dark stone exterior and a very ornate interior. Worth a walk over to take a look. As long as there isn't a service you can wander over and see the chapels and the impressive stained glass. It's free to look around! I wasn't originally going to go, but am happy that I did!

The cathedral and gardens are amazing and beautiful however the Asian tourists really do need to be educated about the etiquette of visiting a church. Today I saw a woman pull her son’s pants down and allowed him to urinate in the garden right near one of the saints, just outside the church. Nearly hitting people with his urine. Sorry, but that’s not on!

The divine mother cathedral of the Archdiocese of Melbourne. Beautiful Gothic architecture, well-kept grounds, and friendly and helpful staff explains why so many tour buses and ordinary Melbournians visit so frequently.

Thoroughly enjoyed walking around and through this lovely cathedral. Apart from the history of its development including the key people involved its fascinating to see / understand the architectural and engineering aspects. Defintely worth a visit followed by a walk through Fitzroy Gardens.

A beautiful interior. Very peaceful. Visit in the afternoon. The sunlight through the windows is spectacular.

Beautiful and peaceful place but it will better if there has no group of ... tourists.

Unbelievable place. I had never been in a building like this.totally amazing. I was shocked by the size and beauty...and then the bells started to ring. A very holy place. I felt privileged to enter. I thank the church for this place to open to the public. Definitely gives one time to reflect.

The building is beautiful. I am not a Catholic, but I appreciated the surroundings nevertheless. There's definitely an atmosphere of peace and tranquility in there, regardless of what kind of god you do or don't believe in.

A beautiful church reminiscent of many other church's in Europe. A wonderful mass, plenty of seating available. A must to visit if you are a visitor to Melbourne.
