Get off the Collingwood train station, walk east to the Yarra River, and walk along the river for ten minutes to come to the quiet and interesting place of Abbotsford convent. It was originally a church asset, and now it is similar to a creative garden, including a small farm. The ancient religious building now has restaurants and artist's studios, which are very distinctive.
If you are coming by bus, the station is at the gate of the monastery. Because there is no particularly open space, it is difficult to take a panoramic view of the monastery. In addition, due to sunlight, many parts are in shadow. Don't be entangled in not being able to take a perfect photo, keep the beautiful look in your memory, come closer, and take a closer look at the sculpture above. If you want to visit the inner garden, plan your time first.
The Albertsburg Convent was once the place where priests lived for more than 100 years. Now, it has become a place where locals gather to eat, drink, shop, and experience life and art.
Very beautiful monastery, very well preserved, you can still feel the artistic atmosphere of the past
