St. Mary's Cathedral is one of the notable and historic Sydney churches, a Sydney landmark and also the mother church of Australian Catholicism.
An imposing stone structure of decorated geometrical Gothic design, with twin towers above its main southern entrance, rises along the northeastern side of Hyde Park in the heart of Sydney. St Mary's Cathedral, whose foundation stone was laid by Archbishop Bede Polding in 1868, rises from the site of the first Sydney cathedral built earlier in the century but which had gone up in flames in 1865.
