The Old Convent is split into upper and lower areas, and has simple but cosy accommodation for a minimum of 15 and a maximum of 30 people, with a variety of single, twin, triplet 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, additional small halls are available in St Joseph’s Hall, the Work Centre and the Seminar Room.

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 a fully catered service enjoying meals 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.
