Voted in the Top 10 Wedding Venues in Australia. Mysterious and majestic, The Convent will linger in the memory of your guests forever.

The Convent is Daylesford’s most iconic building… nestled atop of Wombat Hill; amidst six acres of enchanting gardens; overlooking the township. Built in the 1850’s for the Gold Commissioner, this amazing building has been lovingly restored… offering today’s bridal couples a truly unique wedding venue.

One magical location for the entire wedding celebration: the ceremony, photos, reception and after-party, along with staying in the Penthouse - The Convent really has it all.

Every part of The Convent has its own distinctive character, tying in modern designs with old world charm. We have art, history, architecture, picturesque gardens, breathtaking views, superb food & wine and warm friendly service.

Everything you are looking for is… The Convent, Daylesford!

Ceremony.

For a traditional ceremony, there is The Chapel… for a contemporary style ceremony, there is The Atrium…and if you prefer an outdoor ceremony, there are two amazing garden locations!

Reception.

The Convent offers you a choice of two stunning reception rooms: the St. Lawrence Room and the St Michael’s Room. You will love the artwork adorned throughout, the architectural features combining the old with the new and the sheer beauty everywhere you turn!

The St Lawrence room seats up to 60 guests… with a dancefloor in the Atrium – your guests will enjoy dancing under the stars. There is a balcony overlooking Daylesford and decking area flowing out into the gardens, which are charmingly back-lit in the evening.

The St Michaels room seats up to 120 guests and includes a dance floor. There are bi-folding doors that open on to the decking which is lit up with festoon lighting - allowing guests to mingle outdoors, yet still be part of the celebration inside. Altar Bar. After the reception ends, you and your guests can continue the celebrations in The Convent’s stylish

Altar Bar.

With cosy couches & plush armchairs, your guests can enjoy jazz music whilst having a few quiet drinks or pump up the volume and party on! The after-party in the Altar Bar is a definite highlight of wedding celebrations. It allows you to let your hair down and party – on with your guests.

The Penthouse.

The Penthouse apartment is also on-site... boasting a boudoir style curtained bed, a luxurious hydrotherapy spa, fully equipped kitchenette, gorgeous views of the cascading gardens and an open-style living area… complete with log fire. Its proximity allows you to slip away for some ”quiet couple time” during the reception… and this stylish suite has all the qualities for a romantic wedding night!

Come see why The Convent is one of the most popular venues today.

Venue of my dreams! Marija and Tina were so flexible with what I wanted. Food was outstanding Everything was perfect

26 Oct 2019

The Convent far exceeded our expectations. From day 1, Tina, Marija and the team were hands on and accomodating in helping us plan everything. Their years of experience showed in their organisation and planning - asking all the right questions and ensuring they had everything they needed to get all the details just right. We were able to relax and enjoy our wedding knowing that everything had been thought of and meticulously planned. The service on the day was impeccable and the food was delicious (and plentiful!). Tina was there from managing ceremony entrances to locking up after the last guests left. We can not recommend The Convent more highly. It is so much more than just a beautiful location, it is a one-stop-shop for the perfect day with an experienced, warm and friendly team who take all the stress out of planning a wedding.

The Convent Gallery in Daylesford is an absolutely stunning venue! We were married in the Atrium, which was the perfect location on a hot but rainy day. The rain didn't stop us from having lots of beautiful photos - the grounds are so beautiful that there is no need to go anywhere else (even when it's raining!) Delicious food and a wonderful evening.

Absolutely stunning venue, incredibly friendly and professional staff and our guests won't stop talking about how much fun they had. The day came together so well and we couldn't be happier with how it went!

We had our ceremony and reception at the Convent Gallery in August 2018. We loved that everything was in the one place. Beautiful location, which made for great photos. Food was delicious, we had many compliments from our guests. . Thank you Tina, Marija and all the staff you made our day so special!!

Communication was great and every question was answered. They were accommodating and beautiful feedback was provided from the guests. Nothing was a hassle and they were great. The team will help you with anything that you are after!

Absolutely everything about our wedding at the Convent was outstanding and lived up to all of our expectations. The staff were brilliant, in particular Xanthia and Teneal stood out as being particularly attentive and interactive with our guests and all around warm and lovely people. Our guests continually commented about the wonderful food and service. It is a very distinctive and unique venue. Our favourite wedding photos were taken in the grounds and upstairs in the infirmary. The grounds are spectacular and even on May 27th there was still beautiful autumnal colours to make it that little bit extra special. We chose the smaller of the options for our reception, the St Lawrence Atrium, which was a perfect size for our numbers (about 55) and gave it a nice intimate feel but was still enough room for a decent size dance floor and 4-piece band. Amy and her family put a lot of effort into decorating the room but it looked truly stunning! We stayed in the Penthouse which is so handy being on the same site and available throughout the day. Overall it was honestly the best day of our lives and we are so glad we chose the Convent!

Tina is a joy to work with. When we were looking for a venue it took five minutes speaking with her to know we had found the place. She is so passionate and caring about the couples getting married that she seems like one of the family.

OMG!!! Best venue out there! From the gorgeous building, to the picturesque gardens and and the most beautiful chapel, our venue was just perfect. The food was to die for and the team of staff went above and beyond from day one right to the end. Just perfect.

25 Sep 2015

We got married at the Daylesford Convent Gallery. They offer accommodation onsite at the Penthouse as well as nearby at Love and Madness and Monistraki House. We booked the Penthouse and Love and Madness and loved the quirkiness of Love and Madness. The penthouse was super convenient too.
