Cathedral of St Michael and St John

Diocese of Bathurst, NSW

BATHURST  +610263313066 

Since its beginnings as a parish church in 1861, the Cathedral of St Michael and St John has been central to the religious life of the Catholic Diocese of Bathurst, which spans a wide area of NSW.

Renowned architect Edward Gell, who oversaw construction of the Cathedral, is believed to have crafted many of the distinctive sandstone carvings decorating the exterior of the building.

Consecrated in 1865, the Cathedral’s heritage value was recognised in June 2012 with its listing on the NSW Heritage Register.
