Project drives tourism boom

The Goulburn Post has reported favourably on our recent presentation to Goulburn’s business community.  Based on recent “Destination NSW” tourism data, a conservative forecast is for Sts Peter & Paul’s Old Cathedral to make a strong contribution to Heritage Tourism.  By 2030, Heritage Tourism is forecast to add up to $110 million to the capital […]

Economic Benefits

Business and community leaders gathered last night to discuss the economic and regional opportunities presented by the Sts Peter and Paul Old Cathedral restoration project.  Compelling evidence presented by Genevieve Jacobs, Joe Zabar and others highlighted the many positive impacts that the restoration project offers to Goulburn and the region.  The group also discussed potential […]

Render unto God…

RESTORATION UPDATE Inside Sts Peter and Paul’s Old Cathedral, things are coming along well with the render repair. Once it has dried, the painting will begin. In addition, all the electrical re-wiring has now been completed.

The Hardman Window

Exfoliating?

Everyone is wondering just what is going on INSIDE the Cathedral at the moment – it’s a no-go zone for the next few months – and here is why! There is lead paint on the walls, and where the render is drummy it falls away, leaving the stonework exposed. So, the first job is to […]

Above and Below – the work continues

The creation of the crypt below the altar took almost ten years, and is a feat of engineering that impresses everyone who visits the Cathedral. However, there is still underpinning to be done to stabilize the cathedral due to subsidence and rising damp. While work is going on overhead, the structural engineers have been overseeing […]
