The St. Mary’s Cathedral is almost the largest church in Australia which is also the home to the Archbishop of Sydney. The church is regarded as a Minor Basilica, and is very favourably located in central Sydney. Its structural speciality is in its exceptional twin spires. It bears numerous holy and religious relics and articles. The highly decorated and sculptured walls also bear the beautiful oil paintings of the internationally famous Stations of the Cross.

The walls in the western section are adorned by the Pieta of Michelangelo in marble. The aisle of the church bears the Grave of the Unknown Soldier, which was previously placed in the crypt. The floor of the crypt is decorated with marble. There are elite groups of choir and musical performers, as well as numerous variations of pipe organs and church bells that make the cathedral a buzzing musical centre. The Cathedral preserves the burial ground of the Third Roman Catholic Archbishop of Sydney, St. Patrick Francis Moran.
