the convent daylesford
Nestled on the crest of Wombat Hill Botanical Gardens overlooking Daylesford, The Convent hosts ‘the most beautiful gallery in Australia’ and offers a multitude of places to explore, food to eat, tours to follow, and an incredible history to learn and enjoy.
A feast for the senses, the multi-award winning gallery presenting local, national and international artists is more than a three-level haven of fine art in an historic 19th century mansion.
Boasting expansive views of the countryside and township below, the gallery is complemented by decadent retail areas, a Mediterranean restaurant, relaxing Altar bar, restored chapel, nuns museum, penthouse apartment and two stunning glass fronted function spaces, all surrounded by six acres of stunning gardens.
Lose yourself in the endless possibilities and explore the long and interesting history of The Convent; from its origins as a private residence during the gold rush era of the 1890s to its current incarnation.
