Meet at the Abbottsford Convent Bakery in the (former) Abbotsford Convent arts & cafe precinct. Will be at outdoor table on the right side - from main entrance head towards front right of bakery cafe. Chris C's ph[masked]. Later we can stroll around the (former) convent precinct & maybe a bit of the path past the Children's farm & beside the river If raining, meet in the gallery & cafe instead, that is in main convent building (opposite the outdoor cafe). After coffee, snack, etc there are many options: Plenty of outdoor, & indoor options (if poor weather), including an art gallery or a wander along the picturesque river trail. Getting there: Train: Victoria Park station (South Morang/Hurstbridge lines). Then Bus: #200 or #201 along Johnston st, or, walking takes 15 minutes. Or bus from the city with same route numbers travels along Lonsdale st, then Russell st, Lygon St, Johnston St. Bus Stop for Abbotsford Convent: Clarke St (there's a pedestrian bridge over Johnston St next to Clarke st.) Walk along Clarke St to St Heliers St. Walk down St Heliers St, to Abbotsford Convent entrance. At Abbotsford Convent free parking on nearby streets (2 hour areas & some unlimited), or pay parking $6 flat rate, opposite convent (though free it's difficult getting car spot on St Heliers st). More info below. Parking: There is a pay carpark off St Heliers St. There's no on street parking in St Heliers St. Clarke st, & one or two other streets, past the convent has unrestricted parking. Other streets mostly have 2 hour parking. Close to the convent & Johnston st is only 1 hour Transport. Bus stop on Johnston St is near Clarke st which is just before Johnston st becomes a bridge over the Yarra. Hope to be at tables to the right in front of the cafe, but they don't like reserving outdoor tables, so you may need to look around for us. Will try to have a sign & smiley badge or something so you can find us
