Hello, I created this blog because Melbourne is my city and I want people to see what a beautiful place it is. So come with me on a journey of discovery as we traverse the dining precincts, the culture, the laneways and hidden gems that make Melbourne marvellous.

St. Paul's Anglican Cathedral


St. Pauls Cathedral was opened in 1852 and concecrated in 1891, but work didn't begin on the spires until 1926. One of Melbourne's icons, it stands at the corner of Flinders Street and Swanston Street in the heart of the city.

Thought they were late, I'm glad the spires were added. They're fantastic!

Welcome to the CDP community!

JM - there's something about the old venerable Cathedrals isn't there?

JB - thanks.

Hilda - I'm glad the spires are there too. It wouldn't like like a Church without them.

Thanks for the warm welcome.

Cheers everybody.
