St Andrew's Cathedral


St Andrew's Cathedral was founded in 1819 and consecrated in 1868. It is the oldest cathedral in Australia. The cathedral was extended with the addition of The Chapter House in 1886. It underwent major conservation and restoration work between 1999 and 2000.


Items of interest in the church are the Foundation Plaques, the organ which was originally built in 1866, the lectern (the eagle is a symbol of St John), the font, a gift received in 1868, the tiles and marble floors, mostly still the original and laid between 1862 to 1868. To find your way around the Cathedral pick up the brochure A tour of St Andrews's Cathedral.

The Cathedral is located in Sydney Square, George Street. It is next door to the Town Hall. Closest rail station - Town Hall.
