Create an itinerary including 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.

  • We attended morning service here while in Hobart. The building is lovely and the people friendly. Choir was absent, sadly, but the organ and singing by the congregation was great. The Dean preached...

  • Magical. Enjoyed the peace and quiet as we slowly made our way around the church viewing all the stained glass windows.

  • Perfect place for a photo-op with beautiful stained glass windows and impressive Gothic-style dome. There is a nice quiet garden that you can sit down and relax. There are pamphets given out to casual visitors to explain the great history behind the church and introduce you to a full tour of the whole cathedral.
  • Well, I’d like to say how wonderful the church is. I have never been there. But I can feel it wonderful is every night when I tried to sleep, I always wake up because of the wonderful big clock beautiful sound. I mean I like the clock. But I prefer sleeping well. That's the important thing, isn't it? So could you please change the clock night time? Cheers
