Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / Tasmania / Greater Hobart / Hobart / St. David's Cathedral
Designed by George F. Bodley, St. David's Cathedral is widely regarded as one of the finest examples of the prominent Victorian architect’s work. Constructed between 1868 and 1936 in the Gothic Revival architectural style, the cathedral features a distinctive arcaded entrance with large windows, buttressed turrets, and a square tower made of stone. Stained-glass windows depict the lives of saints, knights, kings, and numerous biblical figures. Along the walls small memorial plaques record the names of notable past members of the congregation. This historical building is located in the heart of the city and forms one of the most recognizable streetscapes in Australia. Visitors are welcome on Sundays at 8am or 10am for Holy Communion, and can also hear the choir sing at 10am. Put St. David's Cathedral and other Hobart attractions into our Hobart trip planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

Lovely cathedral in Hobart which I visited twice while on holiday in Tasmania in 2017. Service went well, coffee and biscuits afterwards, as we also do in England. Stained glass windows. Heated pews!
Spectacular inside. In the museum the army flags have been badly neglected. They should go to an army museum.
