ABOUT THIS IMAGE
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.
