St Mary's Cathedral, Sydney

st mary's cathedral

Designed by William Wardell in the English Gothic revival style, St Mary's , the largest Cathedral in Australia, sits in the middle of superb parkland in the center of Sydney.

Founded in 18214, it was destroyed by fire on 29 June 1865. The new Cathedral was built with honey-coloured dressed Pyrmont sandstone and was developed in three stages between 1866 and 1928.
