St. Mary's Cathedral melds the church's historic walls with modern architecture, intensifying its charm. The facade near the Royal Perth Hospital has the more modern look. Some of the new design elements are the striking glass backdrop, the lighted glass panels behind the altar, and the steel beams supporting the balcony. The gardens and views surrounding the cathedral are perfect for a quiet picnic. A visit to St. Mary's Cathedral represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Perth trip planner to plot your vacation.

This is a very big and beautiful church Saint Mary's Cathedral has always been a beautiful church, The Restoration of the old part of The Church has gone very well.
