Lovely large gallery, huge variety of styles and an interesting shop. The old convent is fascinating and there is a great cafe.

Cafe on site is ok The gallery worth visiting. $5 entry gets you inside the convent to see the art on display and wander the beautiful building. Take a peek at the nuns quarters. The conservatory is a modern addition and beautiful.

Only did the galleries here. Didn’t bother eating here. Wasn’t overly fussed by the galleries. The house it self could be a lot more interesting if they revealed more of its past. I’m sure there would be some stories to be told.

Mum and I enjoyed morning tea in the cafe, got to love the name “Bad Habits” We can highly recommend the scones and One serving between two is enough. Also a great coffee. Great customer service, very obligating to accommodate my mums special needs.

Lovely building and garden setting. The cafe is really unique with great coffee and breakfast. Really excellent customer service. We paid $5 each to look through the gallery which was okay. Would recommend going for the location and the cafe.More
