Open House Perth: St. George’s Cathedral, Perth, WA

The second place I visited on my Open House Perth weekend was the St. George’s Cathedral situated right in the heart of Perth City, on St. George Terrace. To be honest , it is one place that I always pass by when travelling in and out of the city , even catching the bus home from the stop right on the doorsteps of the Church . But I had never been inside to have a look until this weekend.

Being one of the few cathedrals to have been constructed of handmade bricks, the Gothic architectural look of the building is very impressive, and even though it is situated right next to modern bustling city thoroughfare, once you enter the building, you are immediately transported in time into a peaceful and calming atmosphere.

Inside the Cathedral itself are beautiful stained glass windows, icons, and memorials to WA’s pioneering leaders.

St. George’s Cathedral is steeped in history, and was restored to its heritage conditions during a restoration project carried out within the last few years.
