Lonely Planet review

Opposite Federation Sq stands the magnificent Anglican St Paul’s Cathedral. Services were celebrated on this site from the city’s first days. Built between 1880 and 1891, the present church is the work of distinguished ecclesiastical architect William Butterfield (a case of architecture by proxy, as he did not condescend to visit Melbourne, instead sending drawings from England). It features ornate stained-glass windows made between 1887 and 1890, and holds excellent music programs.
