The Convent

The Convent Gallery, Cafe And Function Venue

With its decadent retail areas, Mediterranean restaurant, relaxing Altar bar and lounge, restored chapel, nuns museum, and two stunning glass fronted function spaces, all surrounded by six acres of stunning gardens, our multi-award winning gallery offers endless possibilities for a unique and satisfying experience.

Nestled on the crest of Wombat Hill Botanical Gardens, over-looking Daylesford, The Convent boasts expansive views of the countryside and township below. A feast for the senses, the gallery is more than a three level haven of fine art in an historic 19th century mansion.

Described as ‘the most beautiful gallery in Australia’, the Convent Gallery presents local, national and international artists working in a variety of media and styles.

In an atmosphere enhanced by the high atrium ceiling, art-filled walls and pleasant aromas you can enjoy a light snack or a more substantial meal at Bad Habits Cafe

The Convent regularly features in the top 10 Wedding Venues in Australia. It has everything in one location to make your dream wedding come true. Ceremony choices abound: six-acres of manicured gardens, historic chapel or a soaring glass conservatory.

Whether you are holding an important business conference, or you are planning a big celebration, we have your needs covered. We also have state of the art function facilities with rooms capable of seating up to 120 people. If you need an intimate venue to celebrate a milestone, we can cater to all your needs. The Convent really has it all.
