St Peter's Cathedral

One of Adelaide’s most important churches features stunning stained-glass windows, beautiful surroundings and a resident choir that has captured hearts worldwide.

Discover St. Peter’s Cathedral, a beautiful example of why Adelaide is known as the “city of churches”. The two gothic bell towers of this Anglican cathedral appear to climb right into the sky and its interior is welcoming and bright.

Approaching the cathedral, you might think you’re in one of the old cities of Europe. Look for a round stained-glass window, the focal point of the façade. Inside, tread on the elegant tiled floor and feel the warm ambiance given by the wood panelling, candles and natural light.

On entering the Cathedral, your eye will be drawn to the reredos behind the high altar. Carved from English oak, it features Christ seated in glory. To the left is the recently restored Cathedral Organ, with its brand new (2018) casework. Take some time to appreciate the artwork within the many stained-glass windows, and view the illuminated Saint Cecilia Window at night. The lower windows in the nave depict important figures in the Church of England, and the upper clerestory windows have South Australian themes. Opposite the window commemorating those who died in the First World War, the newest window, the Magdalene Window, celebrates the ministry of women in the church. The sacred space of the Lady Chapel offers a quiet focus on a busy day.

The St. Peter’s Cathedral Choir is a renowned choir in the city and beyond, having travelled internationally to perform. Hear the powerful bells ringing on Sunday mornings, Tuesday evenings and for special occasions. Visit the gift shop for books, CDs of choral music, religious items and postcards, as well as other gifts.

Walk to St. Peter’s Cathedral from North Terrace in around 15 minutes. Join a guided tour for free on Wednesdays or Sundays. The cathedral is nearby the Adelaide Oval and the dining precinct of O’Connell St. After your visit, enjoy the pleasant gardens that surround the cathedral: Karrawirra, Pennington and a few streets away, Brougham.
