Overview

St. John's provides a unique medieval experience. As you enter upon the red carpet, look up in awe to see the stone vaulted ceiling--the only one of its kind in Australia. First completed in 1910, subsequent stages of this cathedral are now being built. A Stonemason's Tour of the work is available. Three features of interest are the intricately carved Queensland silkwood choir stalls; the four hundred tapestry cushions on the pews, designed by Queensland art students circa 1980, based on Australian flora and fauna and the baptismal font of 350 million-year-old fossiliferous grey stone. Modern religious art adorns the sidewalls.
