Somewhere around Redfern station there's a building that has a circular turret thing. Amazingly I've been going in and out on the train for years and only just noticed it. In my defence I do love the mortuary station and am usually looking for it.

So does anyone know what the castle is????

No, that's okay. Thanks for replying. I drew a very bad representation for my hubby. His response "Oh yeah, I know that building" but he didn't tell me what it was. He's going to look out for it today, so we can get a better idea of where it is and Google street view it :)

I ride past that everyday, it's on the corner of Cleveland and Regent streets. I think it's part of the Greek church and theological college there.

Thank you. With this help I found it.
It's the Cathedral of the Annunciation of our Lady Theotokas. It was formerly an Anglican church and was built in 1848.

Mystery solved. Now I might go for a walk and have a good look at it.

I used to hang out in redfern with a gay couple. They were obsessed with apple computers, bmws and dinner parties. Fun times.. I don't think I would ever revisit sydney again, now that i'm somewhat converted to melbourne..
