Brisbane's stunning neo-Gothic Anglican cathedral took more than a century to complete, but the result has been worth the wait. Plagued by lack of funding throughout its history, the final scaffolding was removed from the building in 2009. As the last Gothic-style cathedral to be completed anywhere in the world, the cathedral has seen stonemasons toiling for years using traditional medieval building techniques to complete this wonderful building. It is well worth a visit. Friendly, knowledgeable volunteer guides run tours and will point out some of the details that make this cathedral uniquely Queensland -- such as the carved possums on the organ screen and the hand-stitched cushions.
