The tomb of Australia's only Saint lies in a peaceful Chapel in North Sydney. Pilgrims from all over the globe can be seen praying in the chapel which is part of Mary MacKillop Place, a complex housing a "most unusual and amazing museum".
The museum traces the remarkable story Saint Mary MacKillop from her humble birth to Canonisation and one can even visit her final resting place in Alma Cottage in 1909, which is surrounded by well-tended gardens.
Mary became famous for her work educating "bush kids" and founding Sisters Of Saint Joseph. In 1961, Saint Mary MacKillop officially cured someone suffering from leukemia and many thousands of people also attest to her miracles.
Mary MacKillop Place has a distinct air of peace and tranquillity and I reckon the cafe serves the best scones and tea around. Many interesting books and mementos are available for purchase in the shop.
