Neighborhood: Central Brisbane
Overview

Designed in an early English Gothic style, construction began in 1863, but due to lack of funds this Cathedral was not ready for use until 1874, twenty-four years after the small St. Stephen's Church (chapel) was built. The larger cathedral was needed to cater to the growth in Brisbane's population. The main facade of porphyry stone features twin spires and very elaborate stained glass windows. Inside feel the spirituality of an age-old structure as you gaze at the religious works of art. Throughout the year the Jubilee Choir can be heard.
