Cathedral of The Holy Cross

Landmarks and Buildings

The Cathedral of Holy Cross in Geraldton is renowned for having one of the largest areas of stained glass windows in Australia. Thanks to the elevated lot it stands on, the Anglican cathedral is an impressive sight from the road. Stroll around the grounds to examine the magnificent works of art on the windows. View the inside of the church and collect a pamphlet about its history and significance to the Anglican Diocese of North West Australia.

The 1960s cathedral is known as the “Coventry of Australia” due to its unusual design and resemblance to Coventry Cathedral in England. Visit other magnificent churches in Geraldton including the well known Francis Xavier Cathedral. Continue up Cathedral Avenue to see The Hermitage, a charming 1800s house designed by the prominent architect and priest Monsignor John Hawes.

The coastal town of Geraldton is an aquatic playground with countless attractions. Forming the gateway to the Abrohlos Islands, take the opportunity to snorkel amongst the vast array of marine life or join a fishing expedition. Geraldton is a 4.5 hour drive north of Perth.
