Abbotsford Convent Guided Tours

Abbotsford Convent Guided Tours

Take a tour of the Abbotsford Convent! Experience the Convent’s unique history as you walk around its 6.8 hectares and enter some of its astounding buildings.

Social History Tour
The guided social history tour provides an introduction to the development of the Abbotsford Convent precinct; from its use by the Kulin people, pastoral pioneers, the Good Shepherd Sisters and La Trobe University; to the present day arts, culture and education community. Living memories have been collected from former residents and caretakers of the land. This tour occurs every Sunday and is taken by one of our lovely volunteer tour guides. This tour is also available during the week by appointment for groups of ten or more.

Social History Tours in French
Convent tenant Delphine Laboureau-Ormancey from French tête à tête is now taking Social History Tours in French. Delphine is a French native speaker and a registered VCE teacher with more than 20 years experience in education, both in Australia and overseas. These tours are aimed at students in Year 10 or above and French speaking adults. These tours are available by appointment.

Art Tours
Visitors will wander through the buildings and gardens, popping into artists’ studios, rehearsal and performance spaces, and the two galleries. These tours are focused on what’s happening here now whilst also offering an opportunity to meander through the unrestored sites and hear about the Abbotsford Convent Foundation's plans for the future. These tours are available by appointment for groups of ten people or more.
