Big things

Going Big in the Archdiocese

With the holiday season approaching, Catholic Voice has taken the liberty of celebrating the diversity within the boundaries of the Archdiocese.

Canberra was recently named Lonely Planet’s third best city in the world to visit ahead of 2018. The announcement came as a surprise to some, but was affirmation that we live in a sought-after part of the universe.

And while the Australian Capital Territory is a desired travel destination, we also know that the whole region has much to offer.

One of the most notable things about the Archdiocese is the rich diversity which binds us together from Eden in the south east to Lake Cargelligo in the west.

From the historic region of Goulburn to the oceanic views of the coast to the high country surrounding Mount Kosciuszko there is much to see and do. Combine this with some of Australia’s finest farming regions “out west” and it is clear that we are blessed.

One way to gain a greater appreciation for the diverse regions in which we live, is to follow the BIG THINGS which exist within the Archdiocesan boundaries. None of the BIG THINGS compare in size with the Christ the Redeemer statue in Brazil, but they are still worth a look.

Some are more official than others, but Catholic Voice counted as many as 11- BIG THINGS in the Archdiocese.
