Notre Dame, Paris, France <---> St. Peter's Cathedral, Adelaide, SA, Australia

Similarities between those two cathedrals are amazing and they are both about same tall. Ofcourse it was intended to look like Notre Dame.

There are a lot of churches that follow Notre Dame's architecture. In fact heaps of churches did before Vatican II Council.

^ bit of a history lesson for me, what did the Vatican II council do to change that?
St. Mary's in Sydney is also a similar copy to the Adelaide church

It looks like St Marys Cathedral in Sydney before the spires were added some years ago. It is NOT St Peters in Adelaide. This post is a ruse. :)

If you are refering to Renell's picture... he said it's st Mary's cathedral from Sydney...

The photo I posted is 100% St Peter's because I took it. ;)

Catholic is a latin word for universal. It has a lot of global components to the Catholic faith since the faithfuls are spread out around the world. What the Vatican II did is remove strict building code to Euro-centric designs, instead allow architects to design the church according to their culture and embrace modernity in the new millennium.

If St Peter's Cathedral in Adelaide is Anglican - it is catholic - as the Anglican Church is part of the One True Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church. What Anglicanisim is NOT - is Roman Catholic. Roman Catholics, like Anglicans belong to the Catholic Church, as do all the great Orthodox Church's of the East.
