Bendigo Sacred Heart Cathedral Interior View II
Victoria

The beautiful Sacred Heart Cathedral was designed by the architect W Tappin in 1887. The architectural style is English Gothic.

The cathedral is the largest cathedral outside Melbourne and reputedly the last Early Gothic style cathedral built in the world. Construction began in 1896 and continued until 1908 before lapsing through lack of funds until 1954 when work recommenced.

It was completed in 1977. Dominating the Bendigo skyline, it is built of Geelong sandstone and the tallest spire is 86.6 metres with the bronze cross at its apex weighing 3 tonnes and standing 7 metres.
