The Old Convent is split into upper and lower areas, and has simple but cosy accommodation for a minimum of 10 and a maximum of 29 people, with a variety of single, twin and quad bedrooms with shared bathroom facilities. It is fully self-contained with a kitchen, dining room and large character lounge with an open fireplace.

Residential guests enjoy complimentary access to a range of work and performance spaces. These allow groups to break up into smaller groups as they deliver their own programmes or work with New Norcia presenters. As well, the Seminar Room offers an additional meeting space.

Groups also have access to the town’s recreational facilities which include tennis and basketball courts and ovals for football and hockey.


Guests can choose to self-cater, have meals at the Roadhouse or enjoy fully catered meals either delivered to the Old Convent or served at St Ildephonsus' dining hall. Freshly baked New Norcia Bread is delivered daily to the Museum & Art Gallery and the Roadhouse where it is available to purchase.


We offer a choice of accommodation and catering packages to suit your group’s specific requirements. Final rates are based on the size of your group.
