  1. A real gem! I am glad this facility has been preserved and put to good use. So many grand buildings get torn down for no good reason.

  2. Is this really in the middle of a city? Seems so pastoral. Lovely though, very lovely.

  3. It’s such a beautiful place, and it is right in the city. It’s like an oasis. These places are invaluable treasures! Great to see these photos, Heather, of the Abbey!

  4. Yes Bo! It is within a few kilometres of the CBD and it is quite pastoral. We are very fortunate to have so much green throughout the city. Melbourne really is a garden city and there are lots of lovely places to walk and enjoy the greenery. I can reach a creek within five minutes and they have done a lot to ensure it stays healthy.

  5. A lovely city
    when we are well enough
    we will return, Fran

  6. Oh, Heather, what a beautiful place. So many hidden corners in which to sit and meditate.
