Built between 1874 and 1884, St Saviour’s Cathedral in Goulburn, New South Wales, Australia, is one of the finest white sandstone cathedrals in the Southern Hemisphere. The splendid bell-tower, soaring windows and massive stone work are the first impressions one has of St Saviour’s, either by day, or beautifully floodlit by night. I loved the golden glow of the Cathedral in the early evening.

The Cathedral was designed by one of Australia’s most famous architects, Edmund T. Blackett. St Saviour’s Cathedral expresses the grace, care and forethought of a great architect at the height of his powers. It gains the effect of spaciousness without being very big, and of splendour without being over-ornate.

The tower was built and bells installed as per the original design in 1988 as a bicentennial project. In 2006 the final three bells were installed, giving Goulburn the only 12 bell country peal in the Southern Hemisphere.

The Forster and Andrews organ contained 43 stops and 2252 pipes when installed but has been modified several times since. It is regarded as one of the best pipe organs in Australia and one of the most sought after by organists who wish to play it.

Volunteer guides/minders are in attendance between 10am and 4pm. Tours for coach groups are available by prior arrangement.

  • Thanks Michael. I love the architecture of buildings such as these and the floodlights transform it at night.

    Great detail & compostion in this shot, well done.
  • Thank you Malcolm. I was happy with the way this one turned out. It was the best angle to avoid glare from lights actually on the outside of the building.

    wow, love the lighting in this Trish ;) ♥

  • Thanks Tammy. The whole building is beautifully floodlit, but unfortunately there are some external lights on the building itself that interfere with shots from other angles.

    great lighting!

  • Thanks for dropping by and commenting on this shot Whitney. The lighting is thanks to Goulburn City Council or the Church, not sure which, but they have done it beautifully.
