last days in Melbourne

St James Old Cathedral (Anglican). Melbourne's oldest church, corner of Batman and King Sts.

Fitzroy Gardens

St Patrick's Cathedral (Catholic)

Inside St Patrick's, built roughly from 1858 and consecrated in 1897

Victoian Artists Society

Princess Theatre, opened 1n 1886, very lavish inside and out
On our last day in Melbourne we explored the East Side a bit more after touring the National Gallery of Victoria (next post). The architecture was always fun. Old St James Cathedral was started in 1839 before the Gold Rush. It was next door to where Christopher was staying (small building on left side of photo) and on the other side of the church was Flagstaff Gardens. A strange coincidence was that once a week Scott's cousin, Rob, a doctor in Melbourne worked at the refugee center in this church.
