Sacred Heart Cathedral, Bendigo

Bendigo is about 150km from Melbourne in the State of Victoria Australia
Gold was discovered many years ago so hence many migrants came to settle and find the gold.
There are also factories of various types along with farming in the district.

Sacred Heart Cathedral was built of Sandstone in the mid to late 1800's, after a rest the Cathedral was completed in recent times being one of the largest Cathedral's in Australia.
