St Mary's Cathedral is located at the corner of College Street and Prince Albert Road, across from Hyde Park. It's the site of the Archbishop of Sydney, also called the Mother Church of Australian Catholicism. The double towers of the cathedral are emblematic of Sydney. The cathedral is built using local sandstone. The gothic architectural style of the steeple arches inherited the air of European Middle Ages cathedrals. The cathedral crypt's mosaic floor by Father Melocco is made out of colorful pebbles on the theme of Genesis, with exquisite craftsmanship.

St Mary's Cathedral is one of Sydney’s oldest and grandest buildings. Built on land given to the Catholic Church during the earliest days of colonization (1820), the original church was almost completely destroyed by fire and later rebuilt in its current form. The building that stands on Sydney’s central College Street today was constructed from Sydney sandstone and is regarded as one of the finest examples of an English-style Gothic Cathedral in the world.
In addition to surfing, I also launched an untouchable trip to Australia. The first stop of the
journey is the famous harbour city, colorful Sydney! As Australia's iconic city, Sydney's fascinating coastal scenery and unique cuisine attract visitors from all over the world. However, today I will take you to experience Sydney outside the travel guide. Follow me to see what other hidden menus in Sydney~
Darling Harbour/Rock Zone
Rock Zone is different from other Sydney suburbs. It is a mix of old and new Sydney elements. The elegant atmosphere of the Sydney Harbour blends. Featuring pebble alleys and historic verandas, there are also trendy bars and contemporary art galleries.
From the Harbour Bridge, not far from the historic rocky area. There are densely populated cafes, bars and elegant art galleries in the cobbled alleys. Walking here, many locals sit diagonally in the sun, slowly enjoying their favorite Brunch, or pushing the door into the art gallery to see the paintings of love. It's a pity that we are not in the rocky area on the weekends, or we can visit the famous "rocky weekend market". I heard that in this literary weekend market, I can find vinyl records.
Manli Khao Sok has Australia's unique boardwalk. Here you'll find shopping malls, cafes and galleries where you can experience Australian culture and buy bizarre tourist souvenirs! Australians really like to sunbathe, and on the white sand beaches, local people can spread the big words to enjoy the sun.
At Manly Beach you will experience the true surfing culture of Australia. In addition, at sunset, you can enjoy the beautiful scenery of the harbour at Manly Beach: the beautiful seaside, there are all kinds of yachts on the sea, the sun sets, and the most beautiful picture is unfolded in front of you. You can also choose to take the ferry, walk the deck and enjoy the unique view of Sydney Harbour from another angle.
Saint Mary's Cathedral
The unique "gothic" St. Mary's Cathedral in the city centre. Unrelated to the faith, attracted by the magnificent spires, want to go in and see. When I went, I met the mass. The believers were praying. The sun was scattered on the chair through the huge stained glass, and the face of the believers was calm and solemn. The side windows are fascinatingly painted, colorful, and each has a biblical story. The vivid and sacred atmosphere allows everyone who comes in to take the initiative to slow down, hold their breath, and feel quietly. Time is soft here and my heart is calm.
Sydney Royal Botanic Gardens
Sydney Park in Sydney, a whole piece of lawn, and lots of plants I can't name. Keke and I came to the early morning and watched the Sydney Opera House. We rushed to the salty sea breeze. We haven't been so relaxed for a long time. We simply sat cross-legged on the lawn and observed the crowd around us. We found that Australians really like to bask in the sun, and the benches everywhere are lying downside down with locals with large characters.
The mother of the Catholic Church of Australia, St. Mary's Cathedral
feel the religious culture of a country is also one of the meaning of tourism. After coming out of the Art Gallery of New South Wales, you will pass through the Royal Botanic Gardens, across the street from the magnificent St. Mary's Basilica.
The Cathedral of St. Mary is known as the mother of the Australian Catholic Church. It was built in 1821 and the highest point of the spire is 75 meters. It is built with local deep yellow sandstone. The door of the
cathedral is very distinctive and is a medieval Gothic style in Europe. Many tourists like to take photos here.
The interior of St. Mary's Cathedral is gorgeously decorated. The floor tiles are inlaid with colored Marseille bricks and are world famous for their exquisite craftsmanship and beautiful patterns. The church is an important part of the spiritual and cultural life of the entire city and country. The
church is free and open, and is a great free tourist attraction.
