Located across from Hyde Park is St. Mary's Cathedral, an imposing gothic structure which was built after the one that first stood here was destroyed by a fire. It's a beautiful building made of the yellow-block sandstone which the city of Sydney is built of. The cathedral is an excellent example of an English-style gothic church and is the center of Sydney's catholic community.

We were enjoying a beautiful day walking around as we do and we happened open the cathedral and decided to pay it a visit. It's quite beautiful with amazing stained glass windows. It's a functioning religious building with daily mass.

Address: St Mary's Road
Directions: Hyde Park, cut into two sections by Park St which leads east to Kings Cross.
