Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / New South Wales / Greater Newcastle / Newcastle / Christ Church Cathedral
A well-preserved piece of Newcastle history, Christ Church Cathedral is surrounded by lush gardens and overlooks the ocean. Designed in the Gothic Revival style and originally planned to include a central tower and spire over the central crossing, the cathedral was completed in 1902 without either of those features finished (the tower was only added in 1979). Stop by for daily mass or visit the cathedral’s gift shop, which sells a wide range of handmade souvenirs and devotional items. The shop is located at the entrance into the cathedral and offers hand-stitched bookmarks, colorful wooden crosses, rosary beads, jewelry, and a variety of greeting and prayer cards.

Christ Church Cathedral reviews
Beautiful cathedral surrounded by great grounds and very old cemetery and what a view of Newcastle from its hill position.

An amazing place to capture some amazing views of Newcastle and the coastline. The hills to access the cathedral are steep so walkers be aware!

Absolutely incredible architecture and history. If you get a chance to hear a choir in there it is quite breathtaking. $10 per person to go up the tower but it's worth it to do at least once.
Amazing, massive, monolith of a historic church. A beautiful example of period architecture, visible from quite some distance away. Covid prevented a look inside unfortunately. Graveyard on site adds to the historic atmosphere
