A superb Victorian era building with a rich history the convent gallery started out as something totally different than what its today. Built during the 1860s, during the Gold Rush it was actually the residence of the then Gold Commissioner. Later during the 1880s the Catholic Church purchased the place and opened a convent school for girls. In the end of 20th century the church was closed in need of greater reparations and purchased by an artist named Tina Banitska in 1988.

Through her efforts and perseverance the place has transformed into an art gallery as well as a place for weddings and other events. The gallery houses number of artworks like paintings, ceramics, glassware, textiles and many more from local artists. Not only is the place one of the best art galleries in Victoria but also home to some stylish bars and cafes. Overall the Convent gallery offers a wholesome experience of satisfying all your senses.

  • Beautiful surroundings, accomodating staff & well priced tasty meals. No dramas for the chefs to change my burger roll to sour dough instead of the brioche bun when I advised brioche & I are mortal enemies. Loved my "happy birthday" song from the servers as well. An afternoon well spent!
