I'm not a church goer in the traditional sense of the word, but I do enjoy visiting old churches wherever I happen to be. I believe they can give you a true sense of an areas history. So I headed for Saint Pauls Cathedral during my visit to Melbourne.
This imposing Anglican cathedral was consecrated in 1891 to serve the predominantly Anglican colonists of the area. At the time it was under the Church of England, and the organ was shipped over from there.
Being from England myself, this isn't anywhere near as old a church as those I am used to from home, but there is a lot to see here in the architecture, the stained glass windows and the memorials.
