    The Abbotsford Convent is the perfect location for a variety of film and photography shoots. We have facilitated a large number of film and television productions, advertisements and fashion shoots as well as many student and artistic projects.

    We have a variety of spaces that range from refurbished rehearsal studios and heritage conference rooms to distressed industrial spaces. We also have a spectacular heritage garden and expansive grounds perfect for film and photography excursions and family portraits. If you wish to see these spaces you can view the images in the location details attachment below or arrange a time to visit with a member of the Venue Hire Department.

Fees apply for all filming and photography at the Convent and they are primarily priced on their impact on the precinct and commercial potential.
