St Pauls Cathedral Melbourne - VIC Landmarks

Landmark: St Pauls Cathedral
Address: Corner Flinders Lane and Swanston Street, Melbourne, 3000, VIC

St Pauls Cathedral is yet another of Melbourne's most prominent and important buildings located on one of Melbourne's busiest intersections in the heart of the CBD. This beautiful cathedral was built by English architect William Butterfield and has an architectural style that is described as Gothic transitional and is a cherished place of worship and prayer. The Moorhouse Tower Lantern is a symbol of significance with every intricate detail and colour indicating special meaning. The first public Christian service held in Melbourne was conducted on this site in 1835 and the following bluestone church built on the site was in use until 1885 before being demolished to clear the location for the current cathedral.

When visiting the Cathedral make time to view The Pentacles or Five Pointed Star, and discover the many meanings behind this ancient symbol. The restoration and conservation of this beautiful cathedral is an ongoing process and continues today and coexists with the National Trust of Australia.
