This Anglican church is one of the tallest wooden buildings still standing in the world. It is located in Georgetown and has been named a national monument. St. George’s Cathedral has been a tourist attraction since the early 1900’s. It contains magnificent Gothic arches, flying buttresses, and columns. Inside the cathedral beautiful stained glass windows and a large chandelier donated by Queen Victoria can be seen.
Dadanawa Ranch is popularly known as Melville's Ranch. This is the largest cattle ranch in Guyana, sprawling across 2,000 square miles of land in the Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo Region. At the ranch, tourists can observe local cowboys, locally known as vacqeros, manage the large herds of livestock. Since the ranch is fairly isolated, tourists should plan on renting a car or chartering a taxi to reach it. This is a great destination for people who enjoy sprawling, picturesque landscapes and spending time outdoors.
