Saint David's Cathedral
Hobart

Designed by George F. Bodley (1827-1907) a leading English ecclesiastical Victorian architect, Saint David’s Cathedral is the second oldest Anglican cathedral in Australia preceded only by St. Andrew's in Sydney. It is a prime example of gothic revival elegance. Bodley designed numerous buildings in England including All Saints in Cambridge, Holy Trinity in Kensington, the Marlborough College Chapel and the London School Board Offices, among many others. He also designed Grace Cathedral in San Francisco and with his pupil James Vaughan, the Washington National Cathedral, (also known as the Cathedral Church of Saint Peter and Saint Paul), in Washington, D.C. He never visited the Hobart site.

Construction took 68 years with the completion of the bell tower taking place in 1936. Saint David’s Cathedral is the spiritual centre of the Anglican Church in Tasmania and is also the seat of the bishop. It is listed on the Registers of the Hobart City Council, the National Trust of Australia (Tasmania) and the Heritage Council of Tasmania.

More About Australia

There are no kangaroos in Austria. We're talking about Australia, the world's smallest continent. That being cleared up, let's dive right in! Australia is a sovereign state under the Commonwealth of Nations, which is in turn overseen by Queen Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, Queen of Australia and Her other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth. The continent was first sighted and charted by the Dutch in 1606. Captain James Cook of Britain came along in the next century to claim it for Britain and name it "New South Wales." Shortly thereafter it was declared to be a penal colony full of nothing but criminals and convicts, giving it the crap reputation you may have heard at your last cocktail party. This rumor ignores 40,000 years of pre-European human history, especially the Aboriginal concept of Dreamtime, an interesting explanation of physical and spiritual reality. The two biggest cities in Australia are Sydney and Melbourne. Sydney is more for business, Melbourne for arts. But that's painting in very broad strokes. Take a whirl around the panoramas to see for yourself! Text by Steve Smith.
