Abbotsford Convent (Abbotsford)




Fascinating guided tours of the Abbotsford Convent arts, cultural, and education precinct occur each Sunday at 2pm.

The Guided Tours provide a detail rich cultural history of the Convent and its former community – the Sisters of the Good Shepherd. The precinct houses artist studios and creative spaces for writers, painters, jewelers, architects and designers; spaces for arts organizations, an auditorium for rehearsal and research & development work and outdoor function and exhibition spaces.

Also included is the Sophia Mundi Steiner School, a WellBeing centre, 3MBS community classical radio station, a glassblower, a bakery, a vegetarian restaurant, a cosy bar and there’s much more.

Opening Hours:


Guided tours occur each Sunday at 2pm

Cost:


The site is open from 7.30am until approx 10pm every day of the year. Entry is free except between 8am and 12.30pm every 4th Saturday of the month for the monthly Slow Food Farmer's Market and occasional special events where a $2 entry fee applies. This entry fee contributes to the restoration of the Convent buildings.

Review:


There are a number of interesting spaces inside and outside the convent buildings. We found a café with some weird items begging to be sampled including beetroot chips and licorice ice-cream. There is a free art space, places for a bite to eat and lovely lawns to rest on.
