I was really pleased that I came for a visit to the convent. The only thing I didn't like was the eary basement but that added to the whole visit - (good to stir up the emotions). The convent was lovely to explore and to be able to come back and use the same ticket for the next three days... More

Gorgeous gardens, art gallery and historical building. I'm a novice, but the art was of a high standard and 7% locally sourced. It will cost a paltry $5 to get in and its worth it. The hill is steep, so if you are not good on hills...research a higher entry point or call them. We didn't try the restaurant, but... More

Seriously boring experience within the labyrinth of rooms is some of the ugliest art and artefacts for sale. Not only a waste of $5.00 each to enter but a waste of time as well. The shops in the main road are full of charming and beautiful giftware and galleries and like most businesses, are free entry! Since when do customers... More

Had a beautiful meal and a coffee at the cafe and then went through the gallery. There is some great art to view and the old buildings are attractive and interesting. The view from the top is great. Worth a brunch and a look.

Had breakfast prior to visiting the gallery. Food was fresh and sourced from local producers. Staff were friendly. $5 entrance fee to the 4 levels of the ex-convent. Start at the basement, then right up to the bell tower and then make your way down to the first floor and finish at ground level. Lots of rooms with paintings and... More

This venue is totally worth a visit. I am not much into art however love history and architecture and this lovely old building has it all. What I couldn't get over was the gorgeous very well maintained gardens stunningly beautiful. The restoration has been well done with lovely balconies, decks and glassed areas where weddings and functions can be held... More

I didn't expect to enjoy the convent gallery as much as I did. I easily got lost a few times exploring the many floors - there is so much to see - so many rooms, and nooks and crannies, some with a story to tell, others providing art to view and others offering a gift idea to purchase for yourself...

A must see for all. Beautiful old building with a lot of history. Lots of works of art, jewellery, pottery, glassware, etc. But not your normal gallery. Take a stroll around the beautiful gardens and all the rooms in the building and the beautiful chapel. Soak in the history. After you have done that have a beautiful meal in the... More
