Abbotsford Convent

1 St Heliers St, Abbotsford VIC 3067

Abbotsford Convent is a vibrant arts and culture precinct, rich in colour, life and activity.

Spanning over 16 acres, yet still a stone’s throw away from the Melbourne CBD, Abbotsford Convent boasts Australia’s largest multi arts precinct.

Renowned for its fusion of striking architecture and natural landscapes, the convent sits at the heart of a creative community, embodying a living place for curiosity, collaboration, meeting, and meaning.

A space that lends itself to being a precinct of art, culture, and events.

Nestled in the grounds of Abbotsford Convent, Rosina Room and Courtyard. A uniquely charming venue that offers an atmosphere of heritage elegance for your special events.

This impressive space was crafted to be striking in its own design, featuring original lead-light windows, polished floorboards, striking high ceilings, and exposed trusses. However, also stands as a canvas, ready to add your personal touch.

For the perfect marriage of spaces, couple the Rosina Function space with the rolling lawns of Heritage Gardens or with the original bluestone Good Shepard Chapel.
