Holidays in Christ Church Cathedral

Holiday Travel Guide
Newcastle which includes a church or cathedral

Admire the Gothic façade, inspect the elegant war memorial and bring your kids to the fun events in Newcastle’s cathedral.

Christ Church Cathedral is an impressive Gothic-revival church that was completed at the beginning of the 20th century. The cathedral contains one of the city’s main war memorials. Gaze up at the church’s impressive tower as you appreciate the architecture of this ecclesiastical gem.

Join the pilgrims, worshippers and sightseers for a religious service in the cathedral’s large nave. Notice how sunlight permeates through the arched windows, generating a spiritual setting. Among the highlights are the excellent stained-glass windows and the large rose window. The building was damaged in 1989 by an earthquake, before being restored to its present glory.

Explore the Warrior’s Chapel, which pays tribute to those who died in World War I. See the gold-encrusted book with a list of names of the fallen who were from the area. Climb to the viewing platform in the tower to appreciate a panoramic vista of Newcastle. Capture photos of the coastline, including the city’s busy harbor.

Head outside to stroll between the trees and admire the groomed hedges in this serene garden. The church and its garden are on a hill, offering a scenic view of the city.

The active cathedral is the heart of the local community, regularly putting on musical and religious events, including baptisms and weddings. Hear the melodious acoustics of the choir and the church’s impressive pipe organ. Bring young children to the Mainly Music events on Thursday mornings. Check for movie screenings for kids and attend drama, arts and crafts and music activities.

Browse the intriguing items on display at the Christ Church Cathedral Shop. The store sells jewelry, medals and crosses as well as cards, pens and other items.

Christ Church Cathedral is between the Hunter River and the Pacific Ocean in the eastern end of Newcastle. Take a bus to one of the many stops in the heart of the city. Visit some of the other nearby sights, such as the Obelisk, Shortland Esplanade and the Newcastle Ocean Baths.
