Sacred Heart Cathedral, Bendigo
25 January 2009

The Sacred Heart Cathedral is one of the largest churches in Australia. It is the principal Catholic church in the city of Bendigo and the Diocese of Sandhurst. It occupies a commanding position on a slope beside the main road leading into Bendigo from Melbourne.

The Cathedral was built in two stages. The first, comprising the nave and side aisles, was opened in September 1901. There was then a long interval until 1954 when work recommenced. The second stage was finally completed in 1977.
