The most impressive building in town is the white-painted, Gothic-style St George's Cathedral, said to be the world's tallest wooden building. It was completed in 1892 and was built with a native hardwood called greenheart. It was enjoying a renovation at the time of writing – though remains open – and will look wonderful when it's finished.
