  • I visited the cathedral during my time in Cairns. It has beautiful and unusual stained glass windows. I also visited the bookshop and met two delightful ladies.  more »
  • Incredibly beautiful stained glass windows depicting the creation story and events of the world wars. An interesting memorial to those who fought for their country.  more »

  • Great church. Priest is a wonderful fella. His homilies though, bless his heart, are increasingly tangential and rambly. Would love to see some new energy doing the homily. But overall an excellent church.
  • Ensure you visit this beautiful cathedral in Cairns. The stained glass windows are a treasure.
