St Marys Cathedral, Junction Murray and Lord Streets - Perth, WA

St Marys Cathedral, Junction Murray and Lord Streets

St Marys is within a few minutes' walk of the business portion of the city. On the original plan of the city of Perth this square was shown as a recreation reserve, but later it was granted to the Benedictine Bishop as the site for a cathedral. In 1926 it was decided to build a new cathedral on the same lines as those of the other capital cities of Australia. Gothic of the Late or Perpendicular period was the style selected and the new cathedral was designed to harmonize with the old structure and eventually to replace it. The interior of the building is splendidly planned, the Altar and Ritual being in view from every part of the Cathedral.
