St Paul’s is delighted to be a part of this year’s Open House Melbourne, taking place on the 30th and 31st of July. This year’s theme is ‘Built/Unbuilt’ seeks to catalyse a city-wide conversation about the future of architecture, landscape and urban design through the lens of pressing issues facing cities today.

On Saturday 30 July, the Cathedral will be open for self-guided tours between 10am and 4pm, giving visitors a chance to explore the many aspects of the Cathedral’s history and architecture.
On Sunday 31 July, for something extra special join our Sunday Services to hear the Cathedral’s choir and fine organ in action. All are welcome at any service.
Exhibition: Butterfield’s Vision
In the Transept Gallery, large-scale reproductions of some of Butterfield’s original drawings, currently in the care of the State Library Victoria, will be on display. Dating from 1878 to 1884, more than 150 drawings are part of the fabric of Melbourne’s story and tell the fascinating history of a building that forever changed the city’s landscape. See the plans, drawn and dispatched by Butterfield from England without ever having set foot in Melbourne, that guided the work of local builders.
