featured Country Victoria Group

.The origins of this splendid building date back to the Gold Rush era of the 1860’s when it was built as the private residence. During the 1880’s it was purchased by the Catholic Church and converted into The Holy Cross Convent and Boarding School for Girls. Closing in 1973 the building and grounds fell into disrepair. In 1988 prize-winning artist and ceramicist Tina Banitska bought the property with great plans. The nun’s infirmary and one of the nuns ‘cells’ or bedrooms have been left un-restored to give visitors an insight into how things once were.

    Very cool Philip.
    Love the way you nurtured this monochrome HDR with just the right amount of effect to make it vibrate and come alive.
    Nice work mate !!

  • Many thanks for dropping in Bill, love playing around with monochrome, the convent is a great place to wander for many years it was derelict , vut it was saved and given a new life as a gallery and wedding venue
