Venues for Hire

    Venues for Hire

    Abbotsford Convent is a unique and beautiful place with a rare fusion of old and new. Its 19th century landscape is filled with artists’ studios, cafes, galleries, markets and more. From intimate to grand, industrial to opulent, the Convent’s spaces are historically fascinating and bursting with character. With views of the countryside, heritage gardens and Yarra River, it’s hard to believe you are just 4km from Melbourne’s CBD. 

    The Abbotsford Convent Foundation is always looking at new ways to support our community and offers discounts for not-for-profits and artistic projects. All venue hire fees go to supporting this unique not-for-profit community site.
