St Monica's Cathedral Reviews
I visited the cathedral during my time in Cairns. It has beautiful and unusual stained glass windows. I also visited the bookshop and met two delightful ladies. more »
Incredibly beautiful stained glass windows depicting the creation story and events of the world wars. An interesting memorial to those who fought for their country. more »
Great church. Priest is a wonderful fella. His homilies though, bless his heart, are increasingly tangential and rambly. Would love to see some new energy doing the homily. But overall an excellent church.
Ensure you visit this beautiful cathedral in Cairns. The stained glass windows are a treasure.
