St. John's Cathedral is the main Anglican Cathedral for Brisbane and is designed as a mixture of French and English Victorian Gothic Revival styles. The Foundation Stone was laid in 1901 with construction undertaken in three phases. No service in progress when I was visiting so an excellent opportunity to walk around and admire the interior. The Cathedral has the... More

Lovely architecture! Beautiful building both outside and inside - very clean and easy to view. Watch the light pay on the stain glass windows. A relaxing visit.

A Prime position in the city but not in the middle of the people in the CBD, its access has a rewarding feel and an attraction into the feeling of a holy place. Rest and calm and deep thoughts come easily when you enter and the visit lingers after you leave.

I've been 'blessed' with visiting St John's on a couple of extremely special and very spontaneous occasions that have left lasting memories. Those moments notwithstanding, they've allowed me to discover this lovely and historic cathedral, the only neo-gothic cathedral completed in the 21st century, if memory serves! What I believed was a refurb and clean-up a few years back was... More

This church is absolutely beautiful and is open to the public even when weddings are being conducted. Inside the huge church it is always a lot cooler. The stain glass windows are breathtakingly beautiful. The church was built almost 100 years ago and only recently finished. It remains one of the stand out buildings in Brisbane's History.

The Cathedral is open most of the time and really does welcome the tourist and worshiper. The Qld sandstone is reminiscent of a wonderful bygone past with the colours and textures to match.

This cathedral was recently finished. The sunlight as it comes through the many stain glass windows is a surreal experience. It's a beautiful building to see and the architecture a wonder to behold. Get there while the sun is shining through the glass to experience the spectacular stain glass effects.

This is a beautiful church and between August to October you are sure to see a wedding in the afternoon. The church remains open to the public regardless if there is a wedding or not.

Just like St Stephens Catholic Cathedral, St John's Anglican cathedral is a beautiful piece of architecture. You marvel at the intricate design and the beautiful structure. It evokes a sense of calmness, surrounded by the hustle and bustle of the CBD, what a contrast!
