Description: Interior view, looking towards the altar. The cathedral was actually built in two stages. The first was finished in 1892 and was only half its current size. The second half was then finished in 1959. Long before the second half was built the cathedral needed repair. In 1902 Cyclone Leonta struck Townsville, devastating several buildings and destroying the cathedral's roof. It was soon restored though and fixed by 1904.
