Sacred Heart Cathedral, Bendigo, Victoria, Australia

A beautiful Catholic Cathedral in Bendigo which was built in 1897 and completed in 1977.  The large pipe organ was installed in 1905, the organ being built by Bishop & Son of London.
I couldn't get a decent photo of the outside due to the sun.
The Cathedral will seat 2,000 people according to the man sitting in the Church who commenced a conversation with me. From memory that same man was sitting in the same place when I last visited the Cathedral :)

The style of the Cathedral is early English Gothic.  A few photos of the outside of the Cathedral.

  2. Lovely cathedral with wonderful stonework - having those three tall towers is unusual.
