A former convent turned art center, world-class wine bar, museum, and artisan boutique, Convent Gallery is where history and the present moment meet. Acres of landscaped botanical gardens abut the convent, adorning your view with seasonal flowers, local flora, and serenity. One of the oldest buildings in town, the convent houses galleries featuring local art, shops selling jeweler and clothing, as well as a restaurant serving Mediterranean cuisine. For spooky experience, consider taking the ghost tour of the convent at night. To visit Convent Gallery on your trip to Daylesford, use our Daylesford vacation route planner.

  • Charming 19th century mansion high on Wombat Hill overlooking the township of Daylesford with gorgeous views. There is so much to see while wandering inside and outside this intriguing building set on six acres of prime land. The mansion includes a unique 3 level gallery of different types of fine art, a retail area, chapel and nuns museum.
  • we had a large family high tea for my mums 90th birthday, not enough food provided for the number of people and the $1100 spent, position of table outside awful. View of car park and no privacy and not accessible, had to step on garden to get to other end of table. Some staff were great (Dee) but the service for food and drinks and general information was slow and unprofessional. Overall very disappointed and unhappy. Will not be returning!
  • Here for breakfast. Environment is beautiful and clean. Staff is also very nice and friendly.
  • Old nun convent. Nice architecture and good modern art gallery
  • Stunning location for a wedding as great afternoon tea
