The Convent was built in 1909 in Coonamble, for the Brigidine Order of Nuns newly arrived from Ireland. Coonamble is 600km west of the Hunter Valley.

This 30 room suite is perched high on a ridge on the Big Sur Coast. In
1860, William Brainard Post was one of the first to stake a claim and homestead

with thriving apple orchards and a successful livestock trade. Around him a new
community sprung up comprised of other equally independent, hard-working and
courageous individuals. In this vein, each of the thirty guest units is named
for one of the original settlers in the Big Sur Area.
