The Convent, Daylesford 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.
With its decadent retail areas, Mediterranean restaurant, relaxing Altar bar and lounge, restored chapel, nuns museum, penthouse apartment and two stunning glass fronted function spaces, all surrounded by six acres of stunning gardens, this multi-award winning gallery offers endless possibilities for a unique and satisfying experience.
The long, narrow, third and top floor has been left in its original derelict state – an eerie reminder of years past. This room, ‘closest to God’ had been used for the nuns’ infirmary, built in 1954.
Today, over 100 years since its establishment as The Holy Cross Convent, the beautiful building continues to edify as ‘The Convent’ – a historical icon known for its celebration of art, history and culture.
