Abbotsford Convent

For over a hundred years, Abbotsford Convent housed Melbourne’s less fortunate women and children. Today, it sprawls across nearly 17 acres of land, looking like an image from the pages of a historical book.

But spend some time exploring the convent, and you’ll notice it now has a modern air. The buildings may make feel like you’ve stepped back in time, though they now house 21st-century attractions.
