Another good photo opp for the heritage enthusiast centraly located opposite the Treasury building near Franklin Square and on the way to the waterfront. Can't be compared to any European Cathedreals but not too bad for the old far flung colony of Van Diemans Land.

Every city has it's Cathedral and Hobart is no exception. Beautiful architecture and a historic part of Hobart. Well worth a visit.

A long walk from the city with no known public transport. A tough task for 2, 70 year plus seniors. When we arrived the church main part locked so only access to the foyer. No historical pamphlets available. SAD!

Worth stopping by when travelling north of the CBD to see beautiful stone work and stained glass in one of Australia's oldest Catholic cathedrals.
