St Mary’s Cathedral

One of the main cathedrals in Australia, it is an example of exquisite British gothic, which, set in the tropics, acquires a completely different appearance. Even though its warm sandstone interior evokes an austere and pious magnificence, see its awesome sanctuary, it also elicits a feeling of the magical, born from what appears a chance encounter of somber Northern Gothicism and torrid tropical setting, whose sheer force of nature seems to envelop all round.
