Facts

  • The sub-contractor's construction work was of a very poor standard, and within nine years, Henry Hunter (widely regarded as Tasmania's greatest 19th century architect) was given the responsibility of redesigning the crumbling Cathedral.
  • Wardell's original and Hunter's re-design included towers and spires, however, these were never built.
  • William Wardell's original design was later used in part for Sydney's own St. Mary's Cathedral.
  • The first design was in 1860 by famous Australian architect William Wardell, who also designed famous buildings such as St. Mary's Cathedral in Sydney and St. Patrick's Cathedral in Melbourne.
  • The Cathedral's original contractor was too busy with other commitments, and a subcontractor subsequently completed the building.
