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!


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!


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.

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.
