Melbourne 3rd Revisit: St. Patrick's Cathedral

On the 1st day we arrived Melbourne, we visited one of the oldest church in the city - St. Patrick's Cathedral. It's Mother Church of the Catholic Archdiocese of Melbourne and one of the architectural glories of Melbourne. It is located in the CBD of Melbourne and is just 10 mins walk from the Parliament house of Melbourne.

As Melbourne is also known as the garden city, so after we visited St. Patrick's Cathedral, we also visited a garden close to the church - Fitzroy Garden. Here are some photos taken in Fitzroy Garden.

There is a very famous building in Fitzroy Garden - Cook's Cottage, a memorial to Captain James Cook.

But we did not go in as we have been there before, plus you need to pay AUD3 per entry. So we just shot some photos right next to it :-\

Traveling in Melbourne City is easy as the government of Melbourne provides very good and most importantly FREE shuttle city circle service (bus and tram).

How to get there:
1. Hop on to a free city circle tram ( and stop at the Parliament House at Spring Street.

2. Walk from Parliament House to St. Patrick's Cathedral. Please follow the map below:
