St. David's Cathedral, Hobart

4.3
#6 of 10 in Historic Sites in Hobart
Religious Site Tourist Spot
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.

Where to stay in Hobart

Hobart features a varied selection of budget and mid-range rooms located within striking distance of the central business district. You can choose from single rooms in small but comfortable hotels, or spacious suites with sweeping views of the Derwent River. If you want to avoid the central areas, look for rooms in North Hobart, where you can stay moments away from some of the city's finest restaurants. Throughout the city, backpacker hostels and pubs with rooms for rent provide another affordable alternative for those traveling on a shoestring.
