arts and cultural precinct
Beautiful place to have a picnic. Little workshops and stores, as well as a gallery, restaurants, and much more!
Beautiful historic old convent which has been converted into an arts and healing space. Multiple cafes onsite and lovely grounds to walk around. This is a must do.
Just four kilometres from Melbourne’s CBD and spread over 16 acres, the Abbotsford Convent – with its 11 historic buildings and gardens – is Australia’s largest multi-arts precinct. The former Convent of the Good Shepherd, this ex-monastic site is now owned by the Abbotsford Convent Foundation (ACF)…
A wonderful place to enjoy the morning and afternoon. Few restaurant around, children’s farm just next door as well with the farmer market.
Right next door to Collingwood Children's Farm and only a short 15 minute stroll along the Yarra River you will find the historic Abbotsford convent. It has a fantastic bakery and other restaurants with local artists and designers taking residence there throughout the year. A local must see!
“This is a fantastic place to visit (with children or without!). It is a 15 minute walk along the Yarra River and is a beautiful oasis only a few kilometers from central Melbourne. There is a farmer's market held there on the second Saturday of each month - be sure not to miss it!”
“Busy local favourite cafe in a beautiful old red brick warehouse - great coffee and food - on a sunny day nab a table on the footpath and watch the world go by.”
“Our other local pub with delicious food and decked out with cool street art (7 mins walk on Victoria Street) ”
“This is a lovely walk along the Merri Creek and Yarra River. About 30 mins from the property.Even if you don't stop at the boat house the walk is beautiful. ”
