Located  about ten minutes  away from the main Tournament site, in an easterly direction towards the Abbey Museum,  the small but charming Abbey Church, is home to the largest and oldest and most significant collection of stained  glass  in all  of  Australia!

The largest and most significant collection of Stained Glass in Australia.

Just how this exquisite and extremely valuable collection of medieval stained glass (some of it dating back to the 14th C )  came to be housed in the Abbey Church, here in the back blocks of Caboolture, makes for an intriguing and a very interesting  talk by our informative  tour guides!

Your Festival wristband allows for admittance by gold coin donation on the day  to the church talk and tour  AS WELL AS  free admission to the neighbouring  Abbey  Museum of  Art and Archaeology!  Tour times are approximately 30 minutes in duration beginning  from 12:15 P.M. through to 2:45 P.M.  on both the Saturday  and  Sunday of the Festival.

To see  something truly awe- inspiring amidst  some  the many inspiring  things you will see at this year’s Abbey Medieval Festival,  we encourage you  to discover the stained glass collection of the Abbey Church.
