Let us tailor an educational walking tour of the magnificent Abbotsford Convent for your group.

Join our knowledgeable guides through the dramatic interiors, serene grounds and newly restored spaces – giving insight into the different lifestyles that existed throughout the Convent’s history.

On the tour you will discover the diverse history of the Convent; from its use as a meeting point for the Kulin Nation, to its days as a convent when the Good Shepherd Sisters ran a closed monastic site for over a century, to the present day arts, culture and education community. You will have the opportunity to visit artists in their historic studios and drop in on the two art galleries, c3 Contemporary Art Space and St Heliers Street Gallery

These tours are aimed at students in Year 9 or above.

Self-guided tours
We welcome self-guided tours. Please book your visit through phone or email and we will provide you with an information pack including self-guided tour notes and a map. Prices vary depending on the size of the group, with a minimum cost of $30. 

All tours need to be booked four weeks in advance.
