St Georges Cathedral, Cnr Cathedral Ave., and St Georges Tce. - Perth, WA

St Georges Cathedral, Cnr Cathedral Ave., and St Georges Tce.

Work was begun on St Georges Cathedral in 1879 to a design by Sydney architect Edmund Blacket. The great tower and steeple of the original plan were never constructed. The present bell tower was added in 1902 as a memorial to Queen Victoria.

This Cathedral is situated in the heart of the city, facing Stirling Gardens. The Cathedral, which follows the Gothic style of architecture of the early English period, was built in 1880 to replace the Church of St George (an old Georgian structure) which had served the needs of the Anglican settlers since the early forties.

The beauty of the interior of the Cathedral has been enriched by several handsome gifts. Perhaps the finest adornment is the beautiful Reredos, a splendid piece of alabaster work, covering the span below the East Window and the north and south walls of the Sanctuary.
