Saint Paul's Cathedral

Local nameSaint Paul's Cathedral
LocationMelbourne, Australia

Recently having celebrated the 125th anniversary of its consecration, the St. Paul's Cathedral is the seat of the archbishop of the Anglican church in Melbourne, as well as a beautiful gem of Gothic transitional style architecture.

The cathedral is located in the heart of Melbourne, next to its busiest square, the Federation Square, from one side, and the Flinders Street Station on the other. Getting to it by public transport is therefore quite easy.

Built out of sandstone, the church was designed by a prominent architect William Butterfield and is considered one of his greatest works. When visiting, do not miss a chance to look at its iconic tile-decorated interior.

It is forbidden to take photographs inside the church, however, capturing the exterior on camera is just fine. Also, if you really want to take a picture of the interior, you can get a permit to do so for $5.
