Event description

Description

Join our passionate guides for a fascinating tour of the Convent.

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, and how it came to be the leading arts, culture and education community it is today.

Living memories have been collected from former residents and caretakers of the land, which the volunteer tour guides share as you explore hidden pockets of the Convent.
