I checked the website before our trip to Sydney but was disappointed to find that Evensong had been changed from Wednesday to Monday so we missed out! Painting inside the cathedral reminded me of circus colours; are they original? Organist was practising when we popped...More

Located next to town hall station (towards George Street exit) this place is calm and peaceful. There are healing sessions which are conducted (every Thursday if I am not wrong).. didn't really attend these sessions but have heard these are pretty good!

When I saw the St. Andrew's Cathedral, it was open. I entered and saw several people preparing for something. I was quite impressed with the organ that had several colors. There were many stained-glass windows as well. Superb! The benches were made of wood, as...More

Looking at cathedrals always keeps me in awe of their grandeur. We happened to stumble upon this cathedral as we were walking past the Town Hall looking for town hall station. Another majestic cathedral stood before us. It was closed unfortunately so we didn't have...More

We were visiting on a Saturday and the church was closed. Very pretty exterior, only wish we could have gone inside. St Andrews Cathedral was built in 1868 and is the oldest cathedral in Australia.

Loved the sight of the church. Very gothic look but pity the space around it is not as big as the one of St Mary's. Next to the town hall

Even though I've worked in the city for years, I've never actually looked inside the cathedral before. I had a nice look around the cathedral during my lunch break recently. It isn't huge, but it has a beautiful interior that is definitely worth seeing. An...More

For many years I have worked in nearby offices, eating my lunch on the seats outside the western entrance to the Cathedral and then entering for some quiet time. I have had many turbulent times at work and was continually refreshed after sitting in one...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
