On this exclusive guided coach tour, you will encounter: -


  • The cloistered courtyard of Nazareth House 
  • The plain modernist San Spirito Chapel with its richly detailed interior and the unused tomb of John Hawes
  • The charming English cottage-styled Hermitage now available as short-stay accommodation
  • The magnificence of St Francis Xavier Cathedral and its underground crypt
  • The burial place of Bishop William Kelly and the story of its discovery
  • The heavenly sounds of the cathedral pipe organ
  • The tolling of Australia’s largest carillon of church bells
Complete the experience with a touch of Irish charm and hospitality at Hawes’ simple St Patrick’s Church, now repurposed as the Midwest Irish Club where you will be entertained and served a complimentary drink and light refreshments.
