Went to a concert here and it was hauntingly beautiful to listen to the music. Low level lighting shone on the pillars, giving it an intimate atmosphere. This should be utilised more readily, such a beautiful venue and stunning architecture.

This cathedral is more or less central to the CBD and offers some respite from the main shopping area. It has some lovely stained glass windows.

St. David's Cathedral is the main Anglican Church in Hobart and is beautifully designed. I visited the cathedral in late afternoon and was the only person inside. Perfect for silent prayer and reflection.

What a beautiful historic building that is just not used enough. A Hobart landmark that is just unappreciated

Many churches we visited overseas were locked up tight but this one welcomes visitors and anyone wanting quiet contemplation and is ooen for all comers. Not ostentatious, lovely stained glass and interesting paintings. Warm and welcoming.

Definitely worth a visit when wandering around Hobart city. The interior is quite lovely, as are the stained glass windows, but it is the atmosphere that really stands out. Occasionally you can catch organ recitals here. Entry by donation.

St David's is a magnificent architecture. The whole building, inside and out is so well. preserved and it's a real pleasure to be at a service. There's a little shop attached that sell some wonderful goods too and I often get gifts there.

Worth a visit be especially if you have had ancestors married here like we have. Our 3xGreat Grandparents were married here in 1812. So it was exciting to come and walk in their footsteps and take in the ambience. Wonderful stained glass windows.

This is a distinct church building among most low rise buildings in Hobart, Tasmania. I found the stained glass window painting very beautiful and took a snap shot of it.
