About
Built in 1977 as part of the renewal of Darwin following the devastation of Cyclone Tracy, Christ Church Cathedral incorporates elements of the old cathedral and modern design. This award-winning building is home to a congregation of people equally committed to drawing from the rich resources of the historic Anglican tradition and finding innovative ways of sharing God's love with all regardless of age, race, sex, marital or family status, sexual orientation, ability or wealth.

Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Christ Church Cathedral comprises a striking design incorporating remnants of the original church (erected in 1902, but largely destroyed in Cyclone Tracy in 1974) into the architecture of the new church. Overall, it leaves a memorable impression.

The old church was built in 1902 but destroyed in Cyclone Tracy in 1974 and the new church built in 1977. There is still part of the old church in front of the new church.

Visited on Saturday 29th April. It's good to see they have retained part of the old Cathedral destroyed by Cyclone Trace as a reminder to it's origins.

Unfortunately, the cathedral was closed when we visited in the afternoon so had to be satisfied with exterior views and seeing the interior through the windows. Part of the previous cathedral destroyed by Cyclone Tracy was incorporated into the new cathedral when it was rebuilt in 1976. The interior seemed devoid of decoration other than the stained-glass window. At the entry gate, plaques attached to each pier give brief information on the construction of the porch and gates in 1944 and the subsequent rebuild in 1965. Other plaques at the rear of the portico commemorate the 40th anniversary of Cyclone Tracy and its path in December 1974.

All that was left after Cyclone Tracy was the facade of the original stone building, which has now been incorporated into a striking modern building. I'm not sure that the integration really works architecturally, but it is good to have preserved the historical remnants. The interior of the new church is stark but warm with high soaring ceilings and a wonderful stained glass window in an interesting shape.

Interesting blend of older architecture and a modern blended reconstruction. Much of the original building was destroyed in 1974 by Cyclone Tracy. It's worthy of walk around and taking the time to read the information boards that detail the history of the cathedral.

I decided to attend a service in lieu of just visiting the church. The congregation were friendly and were happy to show off their church.
The building is beautiful and is a testament to a marriage of Anglican and Indigenous cultures.
Well worth the visit either to worship or just to observe.

Lovely setting and a great bit of early Darwin settlement. This is a part of Darwin CBD that has been kept as much as possible in its original design.

we enjoyed the Sunday Eucharist here, having had a look around and reading the cyclone experience previously. Moving hymns, felt at peace here.
