In the heart of Perth’s heritage precinct is a magnificent English Gothic Revival building, St George’s Cathedral. Consecrated in 1888, it stands as a monument to the pioneers who constructed it from a mix of imported and local materials, including handmade bricks. St George’s contains numerous icons, stained glass windows and memorials, including the Villers-Bretonneux Cross, hewn by soldiers after the famous WWII battle in northern France. There are also memorials to Western Australian pioneers. Open daily 7.30am to 5.30pm. Free entry.
