(170+ reviews on the web)
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. Stop by for daily mass, and hear sacred music performed by the cathedral’s famous choir. Make St David's Cathedral part of your personalized Hobart itinerary using our Hobart vacation generator.
