Christ Church Cathedral, Newcastle
A well-preserved piece of Newcastle history, Christ Church Cathedral is surrounded by lush gardens and overlooks the ocean. Designed in the Gothic Revival style and originally planned to include a central tower and spire over the central crossing, the cathedral was completed in 1902 without either of those features finished (the tower was only added in 1979). Stop by for daily mass or visit the cathedral’s gift shop, which sells a wide range of handmade souvenirs and devotional items. The shop is located at the entrance into the cathedral and offers hand-stitched bookmarks, colorful wooden crosses, rosary beads, jewelry, and a variety of greeting and prayer cards.

Newcastle観光(歩き中心)の途中で。 丘の上にある教会。坂道多めのNewcastleならではかな、と思いました。 なかなか立派な外観です☆彡 キリスト教徒ではないですが、教会内に入って座席に座ってみました。中は、静かでおごぞか…でもどこか温かみのある雰囲気でした。手作りぽい刺繍のクッションもかわいらしい。ずーっと歩いて廻っていたので、癒されました(*´ω｀*) more »Newcastle in the middle of Tourism (walking center).

A good place to stop to see a beautiful Cathedral and learn a little of the history of the city. You can also take a trip up the tower for 10AUD to see the city from a great vantage point. The lady running the gift shop was really helpful and they have a sheet that you can take with you as you walk around in order to do a self-guided tour.
Lovely church at the top of the hills. Provides an amazing aerial view of Newcastle from the tower. Friendly lady at the front operating the gift shop. Impressive architecture and history. Free to visit and photography allowed. Additional donation required to climb the tower for the aerial view.
