RAHS Excursion – St Mary’s Cathedral

July 15 @ 13:45 - 15:30

$10

Built on land given to the Catholic Church during the earliest days of colonisation (1820), Australia’s largest Cathedral is regarded as one of the finest examples of an English-style Gothic revival building in the world.

There are many notable architectural features in the Cathedral’s design including the sandstone interior and façade, its beautiful stained glass windows and the high central nave. The Cathedral’s ornate crypt, with its magnificent terrazzo floor, is considered to be one of the finest mosaic floors in the world and is the final resting place of three of Sydney’s Pioneer Priests.

If you love history or architecture, the building and its interior will offer lots of interesting discoveries.

Details: This 90 minutes tour highlights the history and different areas of the Cathedral and Cathedral Crypt. Meet at 1.45pm and wait in the pews next to the Cathedral Shop,  located in the Western nave and your designated Volunteer Tour Guide will meet everyone there.
