Situated on the corner of Madras and Hereford Streets in the city centre the Cardboard Cathedral was opened in August 2013.

Standing around 21metres high above the altar, the cathedral is made of cardboard tubes and reinforced with wooden beams. It was designed by Japanese architect Shigeru Ban who is known for his innovative designs and his work with paper.
