Sacred Heart Cathedral

Bendigo

 [ centralvic002 ]    

 [ centralvic001 ]Bendigo was a rich gold mining town during the gold rush of the late 1800's and much of it's architecture reflects the wealth during this era. Perhaps the most stunning example is the Sacred Heart Cathedral located on a hill overlooking the city (surprise, surprise). Unlike many country churches which are often blue stone, the creamy sandstone of this cathedral provides a beautiful contrast with the blue skies and late afternoon light.

I've photographed this cathedral a few times, and finally got around to shooting some spherical panoramas. Come on in and have a look around....
