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!

Not one of your over the top Gothic cathedrals. Beautiful stained glass, modest size and friendly congregation. 6pm Sunday Mass had an expert music group with an outstanding violinist.

St Mary's Cathedral is a little walk from central Hobart, but car parking is easy. The cathedral is not always open, but it is worth a try! The neo-gothic exterior is impressive. Next to the West wall is a creative new office annexe shaped like...More

I've only been here for funerals, so I haven't exactly paid attention to the aesthetics of the place, but it definitely fits for all occasions, it is respectful and decadent
