St. Mary's Cathedral#7 in Best Things To Do in Perth
St. Mary's Cathedral is the short name for the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, which rises high on a hilltop in East Perth. Since construction first began on the church back in 1865, it has undergone several repairs and expansion efforts.
"Beautiful" is the sentiment most travelers used to describe St. Mary's Cathedral, complimenting its mix of old and new architecture and its serene atmosphere. But reviewers were mixed on the best way to experience this religious site. Some recommended taking a tour, while others suggested attending one of the religious services.
The cathedral is open daily, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday. On Wednesday and Saturday nights, the cathedral closes at 8 p.m. An hourlong guided tour is held at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesdays, and visitors can purchase AU$5 (about $4) tickets across the road at the Cathedral Office. To get there, just hop on the train and jump off at the McIver station. For more information, visit the St. Mary's Cathedral website.
