The Churches of Colonial Hobart – a history of Hobart in 24 buildings.

Hobart is a very walkable city, and this book, including map, will guide you around its streets to gain insights into life in an 19th century British colony. As a walking guide, author Robyn Everist has taken thousands of visitors — and locals — through Hobart’s streets over ten years, and knows the city back to front. Hobart’s churches and its unique synagogue encompass a huge range of denominations and architectural styles. As Robyn says in her introduction, every church in this book contains something unique, something beautiful, sometimes indefinable, which causes you to pause for a closer look.
