The house on Wombat Hill was built in the 1860s for the Gold Warden, James Daly. A few other colourful characters called the house their home, but its main residents were the Presentation Sisters and boarders of the Holy Cross Convent & school. They called this house their home for almost 90 years!  

More than 140 years of history have impregnated the walls of this magnificent 19th century mansion, once a castle for the Gold Commissioner. Walk with us as we explore The Convent by night and hear the tales of a bygone era and what tales it has to tell!
Tread in the paths of the Nuns who lived here for more than 80 years, some of whom still remain behind overseeing their home. As the mist rolls over The Convent, we begin our lamp lit journey into the world of the unknown, of those who are still earthbound.
Bookings are essential and numbers are limited!
