The ornate, attractive exterior of St. George's Cathedral conceals an equally lavish interior that gives the whole building an impressive visual aesthetic.

After the year 2005, the cathedral underwent an extensive restoration that saw most of the building completely renovated.

  • We came across St Georges Cathedral by chance and just had to go in. Unlike most buildings in Perth, it is old and that was a plus. There seems to be lots happening at St George's and when we visited,...  more »
  • It is a lovely church and I especially like the colorful lights streaming through the stained glass windows..the brick arches also added a nice touch to the church.  more »
  • Visited this historic cathedral in the centre of Perth. Warm welcome from a guide who then offered me a tour. She was extremely knowledgable.  more »

  • An absolutely spectacular and breath taking cathedral in the historical and architectural arena. It is an absolute MUST VISIT not just for tourists but for Australians too. As soon as you enter you are gobsmacked with the grandeur of this place of worship. The sanctuary, the pipe organs with trumpets, the knaves, stained glass all add to a spiritual enrichment of those that walk in. Do check out the pictures.
  • Very big church, workers just seemed unfriendly. We asked if we could look around and the basically just handed us a booklet and said that their tour guide was sick and we had to do it ourselves. The atmosphere of the place made up for the people and it was really amazing seeing the olden church in the heart of Perth. Worth checking out no matter what religion you are!
  • One of the first Cathedrals built in Perth, it beautiful old building, exposed beams, led light windows and a magnificent organ.
  • Midnight Mass at Christmas is beautiful. It's like stepping back in time. The music, the building, the crowd. Definitely do it at least once in your lifetime. Kindest regards from Osaka78
  • The St George's Cathedral is definitely a hidden Gem in Perth first ever been in this place scream attention to details it is so amazing Place the people who organise and run the place are really beautiful people
