We got off the Red hop on and off bus at the fifth stop and went into St Mary’s Church first. This is an amazing wooden structure that has a warm and vibrant feel. Afterward we went into the Cathedral and again it was amazing.

I had no idea the cathedral was so new - and impressive. Huge is the only word for it - it can seat up to 2,000 people. It is well worth the visit even if just to confirm that Christianity is still alive and well.

Auckland Cathedral is a very modern place of worship which nevertheless maintains a very spiritual and symbolic aura. The design of the Cathedral has been extremely thoughtful and the stained-glass windows are exceptional. All in all, a stunning cathedral of which Auckland should be proud.

The cathedral itself is massive. The other item on the property is St. Mary's. It is of historic value for it's Gothic design.
