This place is known for pre wedding photo background for some Asian because the building is beautiful and some people call it "Hogwarts castle"

Sunday by the Cathedral is like being in England or France. Amazing bells and fabulous gargoyles, and that's without going inside

Surprised to find a worthy European style cathedral in a country location in Victoria. An impressive building and a must see when in Bendigo

This an absolutely beautiful building for anyone of any faith to visit. Steep entry at the front but side entry has only a few steps.

Such and imposing and impressive building, yet welcoming. I love this Cathedral's architecture and feel a sense of wellbeing when I visit. Lovely modern statue of Mary McKillop outside that also adds to this place's charm.

Rising from the fog was this glorious construction. Immensely awe inspiring we had to stop and see. The architects and builders sure demonstrate their faith. Spiritually moved to sit and pray. Beautiful and refreshes the soul.

I think so. There are about 4 services spread across Sunday from memory. But it was very welcoming when we went through the week.
