It's a very old church with a lot of history - it has noticeably high ceiling, and is a very present feature in central hobart

The oldest Cathedral in Hobart; St David's affords the wandering visitor an enchanting, quiet step back in time QUIET (forgive the shouting) experience. Right in the middle of the city; it affords the sojourner easy access - without charge! Recommended.

St David's is not just for Sundays, it's a place to take a quiet moment to breathe and sit down; contemplate the history on the surface of Hobart town. The parquetry floor is quite incredible.

Wandering through the town towards the waterfront kept passing this church, decided to go and have a look. So glad we did. A beautiful old church. Takes you back to old England. The calm atmosphere and beautiful stain glass windows make this a must see.
