Lanigan Abbey Estate

Welcome to beautiful historic Gundagai, romantically set on the picturesque banks of the great Murrumbidgee River. Overlooking the town and river beyond, majestically stands Lanigan Abbey Estate romantically restored in the High Victorian manner.

Lanigan Abbey Estate is a historic Heritage & National Trust listed property. The Estate was built in two stages. In 1888 the Abbey was built for The Sisters of Mercy who came from Ireland. The Abbey is built in the Romanesque style, the brick work is in the poly chromatic style in the Lombardic design which is the same as Rippon Lee in Melbourne. Set in re-established gardens in the Italian style of formal lawns with many marble statues and pots filled with exotic trees and plants. Amidst this large garden is the Lanigan Central Square and on the eastern side of Square is the Gothic Designed Art Gallery Restaurant and The Gate Keepers Cottage which was built in 1898 as the school building.

This makes Lanigan Abbey Estate unique in New South Wales and therefore the premium Bed and Breakfast and Art Gallery of the Greater Riverina.
