Christ Church Cathedral

Our Cathedral dominates the skyline, gathering pilgrims, visitors and tourists to enjoy its splendid architecture, music and art.

The church is very large by Australian standards. It is 72.5 metres long, 26.5 metres wide, 36.5 metres high and contains 160 windows, 72 of which are filled with stained glass. In relation to the City, the tower stands 77.5 metres above sea level and 38.5 metres above the ground. From this elevation, the Church dominates the City which it serves and is clearly seen by day and when floodlit by night, from much of the City.

The Cathedral houses Newcastle’s principal War Memorial and Memorabilia.

The Cathedral enjoys an excellent musical tradition with a first class choir and one of the finest pipe organs in Australia.
