St Mary's Cathedral
Tourism - Sydney, NSW
St Mary's Cathedral based in Sydney is a English-style Gothic cathedral built of local sandstone from 1821-1928 and one of the most treasured historic buildings in Australia.
St Mary’s Cathedral stands in the centre of Sydney as a Christian statement of grace and beauty. Generations of artists have bequeathed to it their magnificent gifts in stone and glass, designing a unique space of solace and prayer within this vibrant city.
St Mary’s Cathedral represents the spiritual origins of the Catholic Church in Australia. It is one of Sydney's most treasured historic buildings and one of the finest examples of English-style gothic churches in the world. William Wilkinson Wardell, the 19th-century architect, dreamed of a gothic structure shaped from the local yellow block sandstone on which this city is built. The building was finally completed 100 years after the architect's death. The Cathedral is dedicated to Mary Help of Christians.
