Additional Information

Introduction

St Mary's Cathedral is located at the corner of College Street and Prince Albert Road, across from Hyde Park. It's the site of the Archbishop of Sydney, also called the Mother Church of Australian Catholicism. The double towers of the cathedral are emblematic of Sydney. The cathedral is built using local sandstone. The gothic architectural style of the steeple arches inherited the air of European Middle Ages cathedrals. The cathedral crypt's mosaic floor by Father Melocco is made out of colorful pebbles on the theme of Genesis, with exquisite craftsmanship.
